President Obama’s FY 2015 Budget Emphasizes Clean Energy

Today President Obama released his $3.9 trillion budget proposal for fiscal year (FY) 2015, which begins October 1. The annual budget proposal signals administration priorities for the coming year. In that regard, this budget echoes President Obama’s State of the Union address, where he stressed the need to invest in climate change resilience and promote domestic energy production. However, the budget remains only a request. Any appropriations levels for FY 2015 must be enacted by Congress. Senate and House appropriations panels now will begin to examine the White House’s proposal.

This update highlights the president’s proposed budget for energy-related programs at four federal agencies: the Department of Energy, the Department of Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Agriculture. The president’s budget request can be found here. Each agency will also outline its budget in more detail.
