How Many Federal Dollars Does the EPA Really Gobble Up?

Inside Climate News : The Environmental Protection Agency has been accused of everything from running this country to waging an economy-destroying war on coal . But it turns out the GOP’s prime target isn’t that big after all.  



The agency’s budget represents an almost invisible slice of the federal pie—less than a quarter of a percent of Obama’s proposed $4 trillion budget for the 2016 fiscal year. If approved, the EPA’s budget next year would be 16.5 percent smaller than it was in 2010.
