House GOP Want To Kill Green Jobs Innovation Fund

In a heavily anti-labor, anti-health fiscal year 2012 Labor, Health and Human Services (LHHS) funding bill, the Republicans in charge of the House Appropriations Committee have inserted a line-item attack against the Green Jobs Innovation Fund. This year, the program has distributed $38 million to jobs organizations that serve Connecticut, Ohio, New York, Louisiana, Florida, Arizona, Rhode Island, California, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Virginia, Massachusetts, Illinois, Michigan, Washington, and Washington, DC. President Obama has requested $60 million for the Green Jobs Innovation Fund for next year, to help Americans find jobs in one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy.
