House GOP Leadership Considers Adding Solyndra Offset to CR

House Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier, R-Calif., has confirmed that Republican leaders are considering tacking on as much as $100 million in an additional offset to their GOP continuing resolution—with that new offset tied to the government program involved in the loan guarantees to Solyndra. The CR is expected to be returned for another vote on the House floor Thursday night.

Solyndra is the solar energy firm backed by more than $500 million in government loan guarantees that later declared bankruptcy, and is at the center of a growing federal controversy.

 

The move is seen as a way to bring at least some of the 48 House Republicans who voted against the original version of the bill Wednesday night back on board.
