Essential Estrogen: Proposed Budget Cuts Impact Iowa Domestic Programs, Law Enforcement

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Funding for many domestic programs is on the chopping block as
President George W. Bush's 2009 federal budget proposes increased
military spending and permanent status for earlier tax cuts. The
budgetary cuts take aim at Child Care and Development Block Grants,
Community Development Block Grants, Improving Teacher Quality State
Grants, Low-Income Home Energy Assistance, Section 8 Housing Choice
Vouchers and the Social Services Block Grants. Congressman Dave
Loebsack, a Democrat representing Iowa's 2nd District, announced his
disapproval this morning at Bush's attempt to slash funding for Iowa's
law enforcement and drug prevention efforts in the recently released
fiscal year 2009 budget.
