A bill was introduced in The House of Representatives on March 23rd 2009, that would establish a new national "green bank". This bill is sponsored by Democrat Rep. Christopher Van Hollen of Maryland and co-sponsored by four other democrats.
This bank would essentially be run by Tim Geithner and the treasury department and wholly owned by the United States of America. The purpose of this bank is to establish guaranteed funding for research and development of renewable energy. You can see the full text of the bill at opencongress.org.
Sounds like just the thing we need. It has been proven to the American people time and time again in recent months that the treasury department can do nothing right. But now we want to take "green energy" out of the private sector and fund it through bloated bureaucratic agencies.
