On July 5, a Congressional Research Service report summarized the federal programs and policies in place for ethanol, biodiesel, and other biofuels, and ultimately said the extension of several key tax incentives through last December's Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 (Pub. L. No. 111-312) was likely the last instance of tax-based support for these programs. The CRS report claimed that, “support for extending some or all of these tax incentives beyond 2011 may be limited.” The CRS report's findings are a stark departure from their February 2010 assessment, which noted that congressional interest then existed for extending tax credits for biofuels.
