[GreenYes] bush budget epa prop fy2003
In the just released 2003 Whitehouse budget, current
environmental education programs have been labeled
"ineffective." The budget calls for a reorganization
of EPA, with EE funds being reallocated to the
National Science Foundation.

The full report can be found at:
<<<www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/fy2003/>>>. 

Page 3 contains the following: Program: Environmental
Education Assessment: Ineffective Explanation: This
program has supported environmental advocacy rather
than environmental education. The budget transfers
funding to the National Science Foundation's (NSF)
math and science programs so that a consolidated
program can better serve educators and students. 

this full section can be read at:
http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/fy2003/bud25.html

Obviously this is a significant change of direction
for the epa and its current program partners...you may
want to follow how this issue develops.
