WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 8, 2014) – The BlueGreen Alliance today urged Congress to pass a budget immediately and to reinvest in clean energy manufacturing programs like the Production Tax Credit and Advanced Energy Project Credit. The following is a statement from BlueGreen Alliance Executive Director Kim Glas:
“It’s our hope that Congress puts the best interests of the American people before their own by quickly passing a budget to fully fund the government. It’s equally important, despite it being the holiday season, that Congress avoid efforts to ornament this budget bill like a Christmas tree with burdensome policy riders that would significantly delay the approval process.
“The remaining days of this legislative session would be a missed opportunity without the renewal of clean energy investments like the Production Tax Credit and Advanced Energy Project Credit. Congressional approval of these important priorities will help us all breathe a sigh of relief as we close the book on 2014.”
