House passes energy plan
Category: Op/EdBy: vic-eldred • one month ago • 87 comments
The House on Thursday passed an energy and water funding bill — the first under its new Speaker — with big cuts for renewables and home electrification rebates.
The bill, which passed 210-199 is the second piece of legislation to pass since Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) took the gavel.
It is not expected to become law — the White House has already threatened a veto — but it stakes out the GOP’s position as budget negotiations continue .
The bill would cut:
- A program from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) that gives rebates to consumers who purchase electric appliances
- An IRA program that looks to help states and cities adopt climate-friendly building codes
- A large chunk of funding from the Energy Department’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
House GOP passes energy, water funding bill | The Hill
Who would have thought that a largely unknown Representative from Louisiana could walk in and look so effective. This bill which will be vetoed by the radical left's proxy will be the template for the GOP if we finally get a Republican congress in 2024. If voters are wondering where the GOP stands on energy policy, it is now official. The GOP is against waste and radical ideas about climate and green energy.
The Green Energy Plan was nothing more than an ultra-expensive trojan horse that would centrally plan the US economy and make us all less serene, secure & self-sufficient.
Thank you, Speaker Johnson.
