FY 2005 Budget Proposal

Planned Cut In Training Grants Again

President Bush's FY 2005 (October 2004 - Sept 2005) budget proposal was released yesterday. Details to follow, but basically OSHA's funding is fairly flat -- except for the annual planned decrease in the worker training grants from $11 million for direct worker traiing to $4 million for computer training. This is the fourth year Bush has proposed this cut. In every previous year, the money has been restored by Congress.

We'll see what happens this year...
