President Barack Obama is expected to call Friday for an energy fund that would spend $2 billion over 10 years to focus on research on green fuel sources for vehicles.
The proposal would be funded mostly from royalties the government gets from offshore drilling, administration officials said in a teleconference with reporters.
No additional drilling would be needed; instead, more money is expected from streamlining permitting process, increased production, and other proposed changes.

More payoffs to donors, more like.
More wasted Taxpayers money.
Oh man, not again...
- he (Obama), in his 2013 SOTU, said alternative (green) energy will create jobs (like his stimulus and son of stimulus plans)
- he (Obama) has not completely paid back his operatives who helped him won both his presidency yet
- he (Obama) said we don't have a crisis
$Two Billion is not nearly enough....that’s only four Solyndras worth.
Too late for these guys:
UTC Power in South Windsor, a business owned by Oregon-based ClearEdge Power, laid off more than half of its Connecticut employees, as part of a 39 percent cut in the company’s overall workforce.
Police stationed at the business on Friday for security purposes said they were briefed by the company, and 170 of UTC Power’s about 300 employees were laid off. At midday, there were no reports of incidents, said police spokesman Sgt. Scott Custer.
The cuts disproportionately hit the South Windsor location because most of the company’s mobile fuel cell division is located there. The overall cuts, Sager said, are part of a company pivot away from mobile fuel cells that run in vehicles. Going forward, ClearEdge plans to focus on stationary fuel cells.
Another slush fund for the unions and obamas to plunder for personal fortunes.
sign me up.. can I get the bills in 50s and 100s this time..?
silly big gubamint idiots.. ripping off taxpayers for a few votes from corporate bigwigs..
Where’s this money coming from?
How does it involve the source of expenditure legislation via the House?
Just sign the darn Keystone pipeline stuff...........let Companies spend their money for our good instead of taking our money and giving it to the select ones
Great environmental program!
Look, it (GREEN) energy is called that not because it is environmentally better. It is called that because of the billions of GREEN paper funneled to well-connected “you-know-who” so-called executives.
Windmills, solar, unicorn burps, algae to name a few.
Obama doesn’t control the purse strings. The few Republicans we have left in Congress need to grow some balls and shut off the money.
Throwing away more money we’ve borrowed from the Chinese. This grifter won’t let the Keystone pipeline through, but he’ll continue to squander money on worthless “green” projects.
can someone explain how he can travel and do this if he is closing our house down.
Must be nice for the bama’s to have all that house and no people coming in to see it now.
As for green energy, I;ve talked ot many people who got solor panels, wind etc and most have said it was a waste of money.
This is another present to the left wing money men
And the House continues to sleep.
