ABSTRACT
The article reports that the funding for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) would be reduced substantially under the proposed 2008 fiscal budget of U.S. President George W. Bush. The LIHEAP funding would be $1.782 billion under the budget proposal, which is 44 percent less than the $3.4 billion level available in 2006. Several governors have written their concerns regarding this issue to congressional leaders urging them to increase 2007 funding by $1 billion. According to CEO David Parker of American Gas Corp., the Congress should restore the full funding level of LIHEAP in the spirit of compassion and humanity.
