President proposes $179.3 million for Bureau of Ocean Energy Management for FY19

13 Feb 2018

President Donald Trump proposed a $179.3 million Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 budget for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to safely and responsibly manage offshore energy and mineral resources. 

The President's FY 2019 budget request reflects careful analysis and focuses on the development of BOEM's mission, including offshore oil and gas exploration and development, offshore renewable energy, marine minerals management, and science-based analysis. It supports ongoing efforts that are vital to advancing the President's Executive Order 13795, Implementing an America-First Offshore Energy Strategy, which requires BOEM to develop and implement a new National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program (National OCS Program) in conformity with the provisions of the OCS Lands Acts.
