Housing assistance for Native Americans
Lawmakers cut $50 million from the fund that provides housing assistance to Native Americans, bringing the budget for those programs down to $650 million.

A Senate Democrat staffer on the appropriations committee noted the funding was actually $70 million above what Obama requested.

A spokeswoman for the program said the agency could not comment on the cuts, as they were still under discussion.
