Trump Actions Could Have Dire Consequences for California

Washington, D.C.

Last week, the nonprofit organization Ed Source reported that under the recently released Trump budget proposal, California would lose $400 million in federal funding for K-12 education. 

The programs in question are funded through the U.S. Department of Education, an agency targeted for a $9 billion dollar cut in the president’s proposal. 

If approved, California’s K-12 federal allocation would be reduced from the approximately $4 billion received in 2016-17 to $3.64 billion in 2017-18. The proposed cuts would become effective in October. 

As proposed, Trump’s budget would impact every part of the government and have serious repercussions for the nation’s poor as it also makes dramatic cuts to both Medicaid and Food Stamps. 

In addition, last week, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its score of the president’s American Health Care Act. The CBO confirmed it would cause 23 million people to be uninsured and one in six Americans would lose protections for pre-existing conditions.
