It's very early in the federal budget process, but President Trump's proposal  -- with its boost in military spending and severe cuts for several agencies, including the EPA, U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, and the U.S. State Department  -- has made major waves,  including here in New Hampshire.   Now, Congress, which has the power of the purse, takes it from here, so whether President Trump's budget priorities hold sway,  is far from certain.
