Sens. Mark Udall, D-Colo., and Carl Levin, D-Mich., urged their fellow lawmakers to immediately extend the wind-energy Production Tax Credit to stave off the job losses in the industry.

"Until Congress acts, businesses in Colorado and across the country will be forced to shed jobs, dragging our economy backward."
