H.R. 2028 Coats Amendment Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program (Roll Call 58)
The Sen. Dan Coats (R-IN) amendment to the Energy and Water Appropriations bill phases out an alternative energy vehicle loan program, which, after nine years, has billions of dollars in unspent funds and gave loans to companies that went bankrupt. ACU opposes such wasteful government programs, which favor one form of energy over another, and supported this amendment. The Senate defeated the amendment on April 21, 2016 by a vote of 48-49.
