A bill by Reps. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., and Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, to roll back energy tax incentives unwisely targets the wind industry while protecting the tax credits for other energy sources, writes Denise Bode, CEO of the American Wind Energy Association. Wind power is the "most promising source of new manufacturing jobs" in the U.S., Bode writes. "At this critical time for our nation's economy, we should not be contemplating a tax increase on an emerging energy industry that is growing new manufacturing jobs," Bode adds.
