The energy and water appropriations bill at issue here provided $27.1 billion in federal funding for the Energy Department, the Army Corp of Engineers, water projects, and a wide range of independent agencies which handle issues related to energy and water. In the view of Progressives, inadequate funding was included in the bill for renewable energy programs; too much funding, they argued, was directed toward nuclear and fossil fuel energy sources. During debate on the appropriations measure, Congressman Udall (D-CO) offered an amendment which would have provided an additional $30 million for renewable energy programs. For years, Progressives have advocated for a more dedicated effort on the part of the federal government to develop renewable sources of energy such as solar power, biomass energy, and wind power. Although Progressives voted in favor of Udall's amendment, the measure was struck down on a 153-251 vote and the additional money for renewable energy programs was not provided.
