Alexander Leads Charge Against Wind Credit

No one in Congress hates wind power more than Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), and the upcoming lame-duck session of Congress provides the Tennessee Republican his best chance ever to get rid of the wind industry’s biggest federal lifeline: the production tax credit. The credit’s fate will likely hinge mostly on how successful lawmakers are at striking a deal to extend a wide range of tax extenders. But Alexander, along with a handful of other lawmakers, utilities, and conservative interest groups, are trying hard to ensure it doesn’t make it to 2013.
