Legislative Alert: Extend the Production Tax Credit

Tuesday, April 24, 2007

Urge your Representative to cosponsor H.R.197 to extend the Production Tax Credit (PTC).

Take action here!

Please contact your Representative and ask him or her to cosponsor H.R. 197, a bill sponsored by Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D-ND) that would extend the PTC for an additional 5 years at its current full value.

The more cosponsors on a bill, the more momentum a bill has in passing through Congress. The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has provided a sample letter for you to use when you contact your Representative.

The PTC is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2008. The bill, H.R. 197, would extend the PTC until December 31, 2013. AWEA continues to pursue a long-term extension of the PTC. A long-term extension is necessary for the industry to build a supply chain, ramp up production, and create more manufacturing jobs in the U.S.
