Trump Administration Releases Complete FY'18 Budget

The Trump Administration released their much anticipated budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2018.  Budget requests include: cutting DOT spending by 13% to $16.2B; eliminating the TIGER grant program; ending funding for long-haul Amtrak routes and terminating federal subsidies for commercial passenger air service to rural airports through the Essential Air Service program.

Additionally, it endorses an overhaul of the federal air traffic control program, which involves stripping the function from the Federal Aviation Administration and creating a new non-governmental body to oversee it starting in 2021.
