Udall, Grassley Join Veterans in Urging Congress to Extend the Wind PTC ASAP
Senators Mark Udall and Chuck Grassley headlined a press conference today to stress the urgency of extending the wind Production Tax Credit and securing thousands of manufacturing jobs and made-in-America energy. The senators were joined by Reps. Jerry McNerney (D-Calif.) and Steve King (R-Iowa), as well as 40 veterans, many of whom have found post-military careers in the wind energy industry. The veterans were participating in an Operation Free two-day fly-in in which they met with members of Congress from their home states. The congressional members and veterans came together around one message to Congress: Stop delaying the extension of the wind PTC and secure American jobs and energy security now.
