The House Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies (Subcommittee) has approved a significant spending increase for environmental and conservation programs, national parks and programs addressing global warming and renewable energy. The Subcommittee approved a budget for fiscal year (FY) 2010 of $32.3 billion, which is $25 million less than requested by President Obama but 37 percent more than FY 2009 funding, not including economic stimulus package money. The bill would authorize $11 billion for the Interior Department, allowing $2.8 billion for the National Park Service and $1.6 billion for the Fish and Wildlife Service.
