House appropriators approve energy, water spending bill with major cuts

House appropriators this afternoon approved by voice vote a fiscal 2013 energy and water spending measure that would cut funds for clean energy, resurrect the controversial Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump and increase oversight of agency spending. The House Appropriations committee's $32 billion spending request is one of 12 spending targets the panel laid out today to reach a $1.028 trillion level to meet the House-passed budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). The House Energy and Water Development subpanel unanimously voted to approve the $32.1 billion proposal last week.
