NATSO Expresses Concern Over Proposed Leaking UST Program Cuts

Added on: July 11, 2019


NATSO, along with a number of other retail fuel associations, recently sent a letter to key lawmakers urging them to reject the Trump Administration's proposal to cut the Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) trust fund by almost 50 percent.  In his Fiscal Year 2018 budget request, President Trump sought just $47 million for the LUST trust fund; in previous years Congress has provided between $90 million and $100 million for this program.
