WASHINGTON, DC (July 21, 2015) – Today the Senate Finance Committee approved a number of tax incentive extensions, including clean energy and energy efficiency tax provisions. The package was approved during a committee markup and will now be considered by the Senate. BlueGreen Alliance’s Executive Director Kim Glas issued the following statement:

“We applaud the Senate Finance Committee for approving these measures. While these clean energy incentives never should have even been allowed to expire in the first place, lawmakers should use this opportunity to bring back the vitally important Production Tax Credit and other incentives. These are the proven and effective programs that create and maintain good, family-sustaining jobs.

“We urge the Senate to approve long-term clean energy investments and other policies that will grow clean energy, curb emissions and keep the U.S. competitive in the global technology race.”
