ALG opposes Sen. Heitkamp amendment to extend the wind tax credit
January 29, 2015
Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement opposing passage of an amendment offered by Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) that would extend the Wind Production Tax Credit for another five years:
"Americans for Limited Government strongly opposes Senator Heidi Heitkamp's amendment to the Keystone XL pipeline bill that would extend the Wind Production Tax Credit for another five years. The Wind Production Tax Credit is just another example of the crony capitalism that runs rampant in Washington, D.C. distorting our nation's energy markets while encouraging the non-economically sustainable wind farming of America. After decades of being propped up by taxpayers, it is time for the mature wind energy industry to fairly compete in the marketplace rather than serving as a tax dodge for the wealthy."
