October 18, 2009 (Washington D.C) .--The United States House of Representatives passed a bi-partisan measure led by North County Congressman Brian Bilbray (R-CA) and Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) that will expand production of domestic fuel-efficient vehicles.

 

The amendment, included in the Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act (H.R. 3183) which passed by a 308-114 vote, would expand the type of cars eligible for the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Incentive Program so that new companies and designs can compete on an even playing field with more traditional automakers.
