The White House Budget

Monday, March 20, 2017

Late last week the White House released what some are calling a "skinny budget;" a wish list of sorts from the Trump administration as Congress gears up for the budgeting process. Today we'll discuss the possible impacts of the President's budget that included proposed cuts for the EPA (affecting the Chesapeake Bay clean-up program) and a $54 billion defense boost paid for by cutting most non-defense accounts, including foreign aid and arts and humanities programs like the National Endowment for the Arts and funds for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. We'll also talk with WHRO President, Bert Schmidt, about how changes to CPB funding might impact our stations.

Today's Guests:

1. Bert Schmidt - is the President and Chief Executive Officer of WHRO Public Media

2. Margaret Vanderhye - is the Executive Director or The Virginia Commission for the Arts

3. Kelly Barsdate - is the Chief Program and Planning Officer of the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies

4. Christy Everett - is the Hampton Roads Director of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation
