Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate:

Energy issues retained a central focus of debates last week in both the transportation reauthorization conference committee debates and in Administration calls to action.

After touring TPI Composites, a wind turbine blade manufacturer in Newton, Iowa, May 24, President Obama called on Congress to extend the 30 percent wind production tax credit, which is scheduled to expire at the end of the year, saying that such an extension is critical to saving American jobs. The president also called on Congress to expand the Section 48C Advanced Energy Manufacturing Tax Credit. According to a United Technologies/National Journal poll released last week, 64 percent of Americans support extending expiring tax credits for renewable energy and implementing a clean energy standard.
