On September 29, the House Appropriations Committee released a draft fiscal year 2012 funding bill for Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education which defunded the Labor Department's Green Jobs Innovation Fund, mirroring the Senate Appropriation Committee’s bill (S. 1599) that “zeroes out” the training grant program. The Green Jobs Innovation Fund provides competitive grants for worker training in green industry sectors, and has become a target of Republican opposition to clean energy subsidies and skepticism about the DOL’s definition and calculation of green jobs.
