Trump budget hits Pell grants
Democrats on the Joint Economic Committee issued an analysis of President Trump’s budget proposal, noting that “the budget blocks $3.9 billion of the program’s $10.6 billion surplus from being rolled over into FY2018 and beyond. This would effectively reduce the number of students the program can serve in the coming years. Research shows that additional education attainment is linked to improved employment and earnings prospects. In 2016, the median weekly earnings of someone with a bachelor’s degree was $885 and only $498 for someone with a high school diploma.” At Northern Marianas College about 1,000 students receive Pell grants. The maximum amount is $5,920 for the 2017-18 school year. I will continue my support for this important federal program.

BECQ gets $1M from EPA
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $962,275 to the Bureau of Environmental and Coastal Quality. BECQ will use part of the grant money to help hotels in the Northern Marianas to install energy efficient lighting and laundry services. These “green” practices prevent pollution while cutting down operating costs. The work done by BECQ also includes environmental inspections, cleaning up formerly contaminated areas, monitoring pesticide use, ensuring  clean beaches and safe drinking water, and coral reef protection. Congratulations to BECQ.
