The Trump administration is proposing a 37 percent spending cut for the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) budget, according to multiple reports.

U.S. officials say the suggested decrease would likely require staff reductions, including security contractors at diplomatic facilities overseas, The Associated Press said Tuesday.
The AP said development assistance would likely take the biggest hit, citing officials familiar with the proposal.
State and USAID received $50.1 billion during the current fiscal year, it added, a little more than 1 percent of the total federal budget.

The EPA’s reductions are less severe, with as much as 24 percent of its budget possible getting pruned according to reports Monday.
Trump officials will purportedly float a $6.1 billion budget for the EPA next year, a $2 billion cut from current levels.

Former NAACP chief Benjamin Jealous is “actively weighing” a campaign to be Maryland’s governor.

Jealous said Tuesday he is in the early stages of contemplating a Democratic challenge to popular Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, and that he has been recruited since the summer to enter the 2018 election.

Republican President Donald J. Trump’s election prompted Jealous to take the urging more seriously, he said, though he has yet to hire a staff.

“I love our state, and we are living through a historic moment that calls on each of us to ask what more we can do,” Jealous said in an interview. “I would never do it unless there was a clear path” to victory.

Be Safe! I hope it is only a precaution.

It seems so. I’m waiting for the NOAA convective forcast to update at midnight, but I think it turned out to be a false alarm – thankfully! It’s a chore to tote all of them down there and back, though, that’s for sure. On top of a horrid cold, at that.
