"Expiration Of Wind Tax Credit Kills Jobs, Senators Say"

"A bipartisan group of legislators said Wednesday that the failure to expand a critical subsidy for renewable energy could cost Americans tens of thousands of manufacturing and construction jobs."

"Sens. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Reps. Jerry McNerney (D-Calif.) and Steve King (R-Iowa) released a petition signed by 3,500 veterans across the country, hundreds of whom have found post-military work in the wind energy industry, urging Congress to extend the wind production tax credit (PTC).

"Already over the past several months we've seen the real-life effects of Congress' failure to quickly extend what is a common sense tax credit," Udall told reporters at the Capitol."
