President Obama recently unveiled his budget request for fiscal year 2017 and outlined his spending priorities. The administration’s total request for USDA was $155 billion ($25 billion in discretionary funding and $130 billion in mandatory funding), while requests for REE totaled $2.9 billion in discretionary funds. The request is very important to REE to continue research, education, and statistical programs
