The U.S. House of Representatives has passed legislation today that would curtail a controversial Department of Energy loan program that provided funding for the bankrupt Solyndra solar panel company. That $535 million loan by the Obama Administration led to the legislation being called the “No More Solyndras Act.” The measure passed Friday by a 245 to 161 margin.
A California Solar Energy company that had been touted by the Obama Administration as the world's largest solar power plant has filed for bankruptcy. U-S Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky says the situation is raising more questions about the energy companies the President has tried to help. The lawmaker from Bowling Green told WKU Public Radio, "He's for solar panels, as long as his friends build the solar panels, so I think there are some real problems here. "
