If you haven’t been keeping up with politics, President Obama’s budget proposal for fiscal year 2013 is composed of substantial cutbacks for the indoor environment industry.
The Centers for Disease Control asthma and lead initiatives would merge into a Healthy Homes and Community Environment initiative. The budget request for this program is $27 million.
As for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) budget, the State Indoor Radon Grant (SIRG) program would be eliminated. EPA budget for radon would drop $2 million.
Yes, the radon program is important because it has protected human health for over 23 years through the SIRG funding but the President is aiming to eliminate it to support states in establishing their own programs to protect human health without SIRG. The Republican-led house of representatives wants more cuts.
Currently, the National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) is trying to restore federal funding to fight against lead paint and asthma by gaining support from key members of Congress. Although, a scientific panel reports lead in older homes harms children at much lowers levels than previously believed.
The goal of EPA is to discover what programs are best serving its purpose and mission.
