STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, MARCH 20, 2017.....As state representatives continue to mull a response to President Donald Trump's actions and proposals, a new analysis from Sen. Ed Markey predicts that spending cuts suggested by the Trump administration would have a disproportionate impact on Massachusetts.

Trump's budget, if unchanged by Congress, could translate to Massachusetts losing out on $43 million in National Science Foundation funding and ten of the state's 34 Superfund sites losing access to cleanup services, while nearly 26,000 low-income residents would be left without civil legal representation and almost 200,000 families would be left without access to home energy assistance, according to the reportreleased by Markey's office.
