Statement from the Department of Commerce on the President’s America First Budget Blueprint

Mar172017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Friday, March 17, 2017

The President’s America First Budget Blueprint begins the important task of streamlining government and making it more efficient.  It does this while protecting the Department of Commerce’s core missions and directing tax dollars to where the federal government can have the most impact for all Americans.

The Blueprint prioritizes and protects investments that put America first. 
To that end, it strengthens the International Trade Administration’s (ITA) trade enforcement and compliance functions, including the Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duty investigations, while rescaling the agency’s export promotion and trade analysis activities. It increases funding for the U.S. Census Bureau to continue preparations for the 2020 Decennial Census, and brings private-sector sensibility to our major capital expenditures. 

Starting with the America First Budget Blueprint released today, the Administration will be able to fulfill the key priorities of maintaining our national security, spurring job growth, and creating opportunity for all Americans.  The Department looks forward to working with its partners across the government to further realize these goals.
