Wow, a jobs bill finally joined by the obstructionist, miracles do happen!! All these special interests 'climate denier' parrots are doing is what the same easily to be led adults before them have done for some forty years, blocking the growth of an industry that we had started to develop, along with all the offshoot industries and businesses, that we once were the envie of the world in doing in many area's.
Right about that same time the same special interests were joined by others in shipping our once respected and prided experienced and innovative trades to those that envied, now they are leading, especially in alternative energy development, we're barely following as the private sector ronnynomic free market supplyside capitalists aren't investing in our economic growth, the con of the new capitalism, and the special interests political representatives, supposed to be representing the people who hired them and pay them, are continuing the obstruction in economic growth!!
Your denials of make no difference, all you're doing is blocking economic growth, and especially in cleaner alternative energy sources and without the extreme dangers as well of nuclear or the damage done below by fracking etc., while others are actually growing economically and with our once experienced innovative trades needed to do so, as they also invest in the R&D needed to advance what is and seek the new sources!!!
May 16, 2012 - Capping a rare show of congressional bipartisanship, and several years of work, President Barack Obama on Wednesday signed into law a bill that frees up 150 acres for purchase by the city of Tracy in California’s San Joaquin Valley.
The Schulte Road property is slated to be developed as a solar energy farm.
“It will help the city of Tracy a lot,” Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Pleasanton, Calif., said in an interview after the bill signing. “They have been wanting to use this land.”
McNerney, who is relocating his official residency to San Joaquin County following congressional redistricting, cast the bill as an employment-boosting measure. Some 200 jobs will be associated with developing the proposed solar energy facility, Tracy Mayor Brent Ives says. The bill is also an object lesson in what works and what doesn’t in the 112th Congress.
After all, the Tracy land sale legislation is one of only 40 bills that have passed both House and Senate this year and been signed into law by Obama. Seventeen of these bills renamed post offices, border stations or other federal facilities. Many larger, more complicated bills, meanwhile, have fallen by the wayside or stalled in the mud. (Among that few that have passed both houses is a bill to reauthorize the U.S. Export-Import Bank, which awaits Obama’s signature.)
What seems to work, for the most part: a cost-free, narrowly tailored bill that cannot be tagged as either an earmark or a tax and which can attract well-placed supporters from across the party aisle and across the Capitol.
“It’s not a Republican issue, it’s not a Democrat issue; it’s an American jobs issue,” Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Turlock, Calif., declared in a statement. read more>>>
