The House approved, 245-161, the No More Solyndras Act (H.R. 6213) on a largely party-line vote September 14. The measure would end a Department of Energy loan guarantee program but would allow billions of dollars in pending loan guarantee applications for nuclear and fossil energy projects to continue. The legislation would prohibit the agency from making new commitments for loan guarantee applications after 2011, but about 50 pending applications could still be considered. Pending applications include requests for an $8.3 billion nuclear reactor in Waynesboro, Georgia; $2 billion for a uranium-enrichment project in Piketon, Ohio; 1.7 billion for a coal gasification project in Rockport, Indiana; and $2 billion for a coal-to-liquid plant in Medicine Bow, Wyoming. The program has $30.5 billion in authority for nuclear and fossil energy projects, and about $4.5 billion remains for renewable energy projects.
