A bipartisan coalition of governors from 24 states has requested that the Obama administration extend the Production Tax Credit and the Investment Tax Credit for seven more years, according to the American Wind Energy Association. In a letter to the President, the governors assert that an extension will encourage the development of wind energy businesses and resources. The governors also make a number of other recommendations, including establishing an intergovernmental state-federal task force on wind energy development and expanding the Department of Energy's renewable energy program. Ohio Governor John Kasich was not among the governors who signed the letter. For more information, read here.
