The Environmentally Unfriendly
Budget of the U.S. Government
The slice of the pie, that tiny one, which represents only 5% of the total and labeled “Physical Resources” is, where funds for protecting the environment are buried.
It shares this miniscule $116 billion portion of the budget
with the following federal agencies:
• Agriculture • Interior • Transportation • Homeland Security
• Housing and Urban Development • Commerce • Energy
• National Science Education • Army Corps Engineers
• Federal Communications Commission
• And all other physical resources
Homeland Security gets 17% right off the top, therefore, the true amount of the total Physical Resources budget is just a little over 4% or only $96.3 billion.
