Proposals for the Environmental Protection Agency in President Donald Trump's first budget are displayed at the Government Printing Office in Washington on Thursday, March, 16, 2017. The $1.15 trillion presentation proposes a reordering of national spending priorities, pumping significantly more money into the military and homeland security while sharply cutting foreign aid, medical research and the arts. The document also proposes money for the U.S.-Mexico border wall Trump vowed in his campaign to have Mexico finance. The EPA also takes a big hit in the budget proposal. (AP Photo/J.
