Senators John Kerry (D-MA), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Mark Udall (D-CO), Michael Bennet (D-CO), John Boozman (R-AR), Tom Harkin (D-IA), Chick Grassley (R-IA), Tim Johnson (D-SD), John Hoeven (R-ND), Scott Brown (R-MA), John Thune (R-SD), and Jon Tester (D-MT), sent a letter to Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) February 23 encouraging swift action on the reauthorization of the wind production tax credit, which expires at the end of the year. The bipartisan group contends that an extension of the PTC should provide for some long term stability to the market while creating a path for how the wind industry can eventually operate independently of such a credit.
