One-week stopgap makes $632 million in Energy and Water cuts

House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) introduced legislation to fund the government for another week while lawmakers work to come to a compromise on a broader spending package in order to avoid a government shutdown. The one-week spending bill would cut $12 billion in discretionary spending while also funding the Defense Department budget through the end of September.

Here's more on the bill.

The bill makes $632 million in cuts from Energy and Water spending.

Here's a summary of those cuts, via Rogers's office:

"The Energy and Water section of the CR cuts a total of $632 million. The legislation includes cuts that were included in both the House and Senate budget proposals, and/or the White House budget requests totaling $287 [million] from nine programs — including $192 million from the Department of Energy’s environmental cleanup programs. In addition, $344 million is rescinded from unspent prior year balances or from programs which have been canceled."
