As I mentioned in my post yesterday, sometimes a chairman’s mark will change just before the committee marks up legislation. Chairman Baucus’s did. Here is a description of the now-included PTC/ITC proposal:
Description of Proposal
The proposal extends and modifies the expiration dates for the renewable electricity production credit and the 30-percent investment credit in lieu of such production credit. The proposal extends the wind credits (production and investment) for one year, through December 31, 2013. In addition, the expiration date for all renewable power facilities (including wind facilities) is modified such that qualified facilities or property will be eligible for the renewable electricity production credit, or the investment credit in lieu of such credit, if the construction of such facilities or property begins before January 1, 2014.
The proposal also modifies the definition of municipal solid waste to exclude commonly
recycled paper that has been segregated from such waste for purposes of this credit.
The proposal is effective on the date of enactment.
