“Tax Policy: Democrats Look To Regroup On Clean Energy Incentives”

“With impeachment and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement behind them, House Democrats are starting to strategize on reviving a broad package of clean energy tax breaks that fell off the table in year-end talks last month.

A key initial step will be a formal markup of the bill, dubbed the “Growing Renewable Energy and Efficiency Now (GREEN) Act,” which Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.) said will likely be synchronized with the work of the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.

Neal told E&E News he's waiting for Select Committee Chairwoman Kathy Castor (D-Fla.) to roll out the panel's recommendations on tackling warming, which are expected by the end of March. “We want to make sure that there's some consistency to purpose,” Neal said.”
