Energy, Environment, and Resource Agencies Release FY2022 Budget

On May 29, 2021, the Biden administration released its full FY2022 budget request. Several key energy and environmental agencies, including the Department of the Interior (DOI), Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) quickly followed suit. The overall budget request totals $6 trillion, with significant plus-ups in discretionary spending across the federal government. The budget also highlights tackling as a priority the challenges presented by climate change. Brownstein has created a summary of President Joe Biden’s climate-related priorities and selected programs within DOI, DOE and EPA.

Each year the president’s budget proposal is a document that outlines the administration’s priorities and guides agencies and appropriators as funding decisions are made. The Biden administration will need the cooperation of Congress to enact these budget amounts—and the full amounts are unlikely to be realized. This document provides details and attempts to guide Congress on spending amounts the president would like to approve when signing funding legislation.
