The following amendment has already been voted on and we encourage you to check how your representative voted here: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2012/roll311.xml.

Issue Analysis

Is Wind Energy Worth the Green?

Since environmental issues are becoming increasingly salient in the political arena, the subject of alternative energy subsidies warrants some attention. Currently, Congress is deciding whether or not to extend the Production Tax Credit (PTC), a 20-year subsidy which is responsible for most of the growth in the wind sector. The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has exerted considerable political pressure on legislators, both state and federal, in order to garner support for the extension of this subsidy.

GE Cronies Cuddle Up to Tax Code

Business Week does a great job of outlining GE's tax code shenanigans. In sum, the company has laid out big money to powerful DC lobbyists to take advantage of and keep various breaks and loopholes in the tax code.  This isn't anything new or particularly surprising, but it is a great example of what happens when you have a toxic combination of a long and complex tax code and rent-seeking corporations who have been able to carve out special treatment at the expense of individuals.
