Some Republican leaders are jeopardizing the wind-energy Production Tax Credit, which has generated jobs and promoted energy security, according to the editorial board of the Los Angeles Times. The PTC "supports not just developers of wind farms but companies that make turbines and other parts to supply them, accounting for an estimated 37,000 jobs," the editorial states. The best way to solve the issue is to immediately extend the PTC for a year, then tackle the long-term policy for the industry during the tax reform process next year, the board writes.
