President Donald Trump on Tuesday will unveil a plan to reverse roughly $15 billion in already approved spending, with possible cuts to children’s healthcare and other programs.

The cuts would come as part of a so-called rescission package, which allows the president to send a bill to Congress to strip spending from the omnibus spending bill that passed in March.

Administration officials said the package would cut around $7 billion from the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, which was previously authorized but unused. They also said it would cut about $800 million from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation program created by the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.
