WICHITA –The Senate Finance Committee today voted 19-5 in favor of a bill that includes a wind energy Protection Tax Credit. Republicans Pat Roberts of Kansas and Charles Grassley of Iowa joined the democrats in voting for the measure, according to the American Wind Energy Association. Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran is not on the committee, but submitted a letter in support.
But the tax credit is expected to run into a lot tougher time in the more conservative U.S. House. Kansas congressmen Mike Pompeo and Tim Huelskamp have come out against tax credit.
