OVERNIGHT ENERGY: Shutdown can’t stop wind tax credit attacks
And they’re using the government shutdown as ammunition for political attacks.
“With the federal government currently at a standstill over budget negotiations, it is imperative for Congress to continue to root out and address wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars,” states an advisory for the Wednesday hearing on the production tax credit.
A subcommittee is slated to hear from an IRS official, as well as both critics and advocates of the tax incentive that wind project developers call vital to continued growth.
