The White House wants to change the $1.3 trillion spending plan again

After two government shutdowns and vocal opposition from some members of Congress, President Trump finally signed a $1.3 trillion spending bill at the end of March.

But now, more changes to the bill could be on the way.

The White House is planning $10 billion in cuts to the spending package — something conservatives have pushed for since it passed — GOP aides told The Associated Press.

The cuts will come from money left over from previous budgets, such as unspent disaster aid dollars, instead of funding in the massive plan. It'll likely be finalized and presented to Congress early next week, per AP.
