Solyndra: The Gift That Keeps On Taking
Solyndra is still in your pocket.
Bankrupt solar panel maker Solyndra said Friday it could get $23 million in additional tax breaks, a development that angered Republicans who have said the firm got a federal loan guarantee as a political favor.
Reuters reported that a bankruptcy judge said on Friday that Solyndra’s creditors could vote on the bankruptcy plan with the additional tax breaks. A final decision would come Oct. 17 -- just weeks before the Nov. 6 election.
Solyndra already had disclosed it could be eligible for $341 million-worth of tax breaks.
