Conservatives Again Attacking Obama Over Solar Firm That Bush Funded
Submitted by Cheston Catalano

But federal backing for the project has its roots in the George W. Bush administration, not the Obama administration.
Bush Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman announced in March 2007 that Amonix was one of 13 solar companies up for a total of $168 million in grant funding under a program called the Solar America Initiative.
