Casey Opposes House Budget Plan http://wesa.fm/post/sen-casey-opposes-house-budget-plan <p>Pennsylvania’s senior U.S. Senator is criticizing a House budget plan that would cut Community Development Block Grants nearly in half.</p><p>While the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee put forward $3.15 billion in grants, &nbsp;the House proposal is $1.67 billion.</p><p>In a letter to the committee, Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) said, “The CDBG program is a smart investment that directly helps cities and municipalities catalyze economic development and create jobs. As this bill comes to the floor I will continue to advocate for a strong funding level for the CDBG program.”</p> Thu, 18 Jul 2013 19:09:53 +0000 Michael Lynch 13349 at http://wesa.fm
