Kerry Hopes Tax Incentives Bill Passes This Year
Despite doubts from many in Washington that an oil spill response bill, let alone a comprehensive climate bill, can pass the Senate this year, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) is holding out hope that his energy tax incentives bill will become part of an energy bill that passes this year.
Whitney Smith, Kerry’s spokeswoman, sends this tidbit on timing:
Senator Kerry is hopeful that energy tax provisions will be part of any energy package that moves this year. His bill highlights key priorities for advancing clean energy and reducing carbon emissions.
Kerry introduces his energy tax incentives bill today.
