On September 14, House appropriators introduced H.J. Resolution 79 to fund the government from October 1 to November 18 and cuts $1.5 billion of credit subsidies from the $7.5 billion Department of Energy advanced vehicle manufacturing program, and slashes each agency's already enacted spending levels by 1.5 percent. In an odd turn, Resolution 79 would mean higher spending levels for both the Environmental Protection Agency and DOE fiscal 2012 and none of the policy riders proposed in earlier Republican proposals, but it is unclear whether this is the last round of cuts.
