President’s Budget Cuts Put Coastal Communities at Risk
Today, the Trump administration released its budget that includes a devastating $902 million cut to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), jeopardizing both our ocean health and critical functions that we rely on every day. NOAA is essential for protecting endangered species, keeping trash off our coastlines and keeping our families safe in the event of storms.
This fight is just beginning. Congress has the power to stop this—but they need to hear from YOU today.
Our ocean contributes $359 billion to our national economy, and these cuts would have a devastating impact on the seafood, restaurant and tourism industries and local coastal economies. These proposed cuts are detrimental for our ocean and we can’t afford to put our families and thousands of coastal communities at risk. Will you join us and speak up for our ocean?
