The Senate Finance Committee will mark up the tax extenders package in the morning.
As E2-Wire reported when the bill dropped Tuesday, it does not include the popular production tax credit (PTC) that benefits wind energy and some other renewable electricity industries.
The surprising exclusion drew attention from wind energy’s supporters on and off Capitol Hill. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) proposed an amendment to renew the PTC, drawing support from other members and the wind energy industry. A committee aide said to expect the PTC in that is passed Thursday in the committee.
