HEITKAMP AMENDMENT SUPPORTING THE WIND PRODUCTION TAX CREDIT The amendment, introduced by Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), expresses the sense of the Senate that the Wind Production Tax Credit and seven other now-expired tax credits for green energy production should be reauthorized and extended until 2020. At the beginning of the year, special interest tax breaks for wind, closed-loop biomass, open-loop biomass, geothermal and solar energy facilities, landfill gas facilities, trash facilities, qualified hydropower facility, and marine and hydrokinetic renewable energy facilities expired.
KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE This week, the Senate began consideration of the Keystone XL Pipeline Act (S. 1), which mirrors the bill (H.R. 3) approved by the House on January 9th. The project would increase American energy security, create thousands of jobs, and increase revenue in the states it runs through.
DHS FUNDING BILL: A BLANK CHECK FOR AMNESTY On Friday, February 27, the Senate adopted a substitute amendment (#255) offered by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act (H.R. 240). Heritage Action was key voting in favor of the House-passed DHS funding bill prior to the adoption of the McConnell Amendment, which essentially removed language that would have denied funding and resources for the President’s unconstitutional amnesty. With the adoption of the substitute amendment, Heritage Action will key vote against H.R. 240 and include it as a key vote on our legislative scorecard.
