Top GOP critic of Obama 'green jobs' push hailed U.S.-grant project back home

Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.), who is leading GOP attacks on the Obama administration's use of stimulus money to promote green jobs, was a big fan of at least one federal green jobs effort -- a $95.5 million grant to a company in his district. Last March, Stearns attended a groundbreaking ceremony for a battery manufacturing plant on the outskirts of Jacksonville that was built to make lithium-ion battery cells for military hybrid vehicles and solar and wind energy storage. Nearly half the cash for the new Saft America Inc. facility was provided through a cost-sharing arrangement funded through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act. At the time, Stearns said he was "honored to join in welcoming Safts" to the area.
