Portland Business Journal logoThe Portland Business Journal reports…

A wave energy amendment sponsored by an Oregon Congressional rep has passed through the House.

Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, a Portland Democrat, was one of a handful of leaders looking to boost wave energy research funding by $9 million.

The amendment looks to restore some of the $20 million from the Department of Energy’s Water Power program after the House Appropriations Committee cut it by $20 million below fiscal year 2014 levels.

The Water Power program backs, among other efforts, wave energy projects launched by Oregon State University, along with hydropower programs.
