House GOP posts new continuing resolution

Just after 8 p.m., House Republicans introduced a new, modified continuing resolution, which includes $100 million in cuts to a Department of Energy program called the Innovative Technology Loan Guarantee Program.

That program is the one that helped fund Solyndra, an energy company that went bankrupt and has led to Republican inquiries about how the program works.

The modification is in the form of an amendment to the continuing resolution that failed in the House on Wednesday. Because that is the only amendment, Republicans seem prepared to try again on a resolution that would fund the government through Nov. 18.

The House Rules Committee was expected to meet at 9 p.m. to approve a rule that takes into account the amendment.
