Clean Budget Coalition – FY 2018 Budget & Riders

OUR POSITION: Congress should pass a clean budget with no ideological riders that funds and protects thriving families and communities.

Capitol hill

Every year, Congress must pass a series of appropriations bills to fund the crucial services and safeguards that protect American families and communities. This year, President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans are proposing a budget rigged for billionaires and big corporations.

It’s bad enough that Republicans are proposing deep and painful funding cuts to the agencies that protect our health and safety, our workplaces and wallets, as well as our environment and our economy. But they’re also threatening to attach hundreds of harmful policy riders to the budget that would repeal essential public protections — our system of safeguards designed to prevent tragedies that can spell disaster for individuals, families, businesses and communities.

Specifically, the GOP’s billionaire budget would roll back Wall Street reforms, gut clean air and clean water protections, attack women’s health care and fundamental civil rights, and more — all in order to pay for huge tax giveaways for their biggest donors. Members of Congress should not support a budget that would shut down critical public services and protections.

Hundreds of organizations have joined together to form the Clean Budget Coalition. We’re calling on Congress and the White House to pass a clean budget with no ideological riders that funds and protects thriving families and communities. Access coalition resources from last year.
