WH Eyeing $18B List of Program Cuts    03/28 06:06

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House is following up its longshot roster of 
budget cuts with a wish list of $18 billion in reductions, including cuts to 
medical research, infrastructure and community development grants.

   Like President Donald Trump's initial 2018 budget proposal, which was panned 
by both Democrats and Republicans earlier this month, the program has little 
chance to be enacted.

   Unlike the budget, the roster of budget cuts doesn't represent official 
administration proposals. Instead, they are a set of "options" sent to 
Republican staff aides and lawmakers working to craft a catchall spending bill.

   White House budget office spokesman John Czwartacki said the proposals were 
not being shared with the media. A Capitol Hill aide described the cuts to The 
Associated Press, but required anonymity to speak because they're not yet 
public.
