Using is the correct word for the sentence.

I will go with E
2/3 split
D is worse, so E remains

(B) 'from cuts to the federal budget' lacks clarity
(C) 'they' has no clear referent
(D) 'windfall from cuts of the federal budget' lack clarity

Both A and E looks alright, but I'll take E for simply being more concise.
