House Republicans are expected to subpoena the White House this week for more documents about failed solar firm Solyndra.
The House Energy and Commerce Committees investigative panel will meet Thursday to vote on a resolution to authorize a White House subpoena. The vote comes after the White House rejected Republicans request for all internal communications related to Solyndra, noting that the administration has already provided more than 70,000 pages of documents to the committee.

Also this week, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) will hold two energy-related hearings. The first, a full committee hearing on Tuesday, focuses on the Environmental Protection Agencys pending air toxics rules for coal plants, known as the Utility MACT. The hearing is called, Should EPA Take A Step Back To Fully Consider Utility MACT's (Maximum Achievable Control Technology) Impact on Job Creation?"
The second hearing, of the committees regulatory affairs subcommittee on Wednesday, is titled, The Green Energy Debacle: Where Has All The Taxpayer Money Gone?"
