BCSE Statement on Introduction of Wyden Technology Neutral Energy Tax Reform

Washington, DC — The Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) released the following statement from BCSE President Lisa Jacobson in response to introduction of the Clean Energy for America Act, introduced by Senator Wyden (D-OR) and cosponsored by 20 Senators.

“The Business Council for Sustainable Energy commends Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden (D-OR) for reintroducing legislation to provide stable, long-term tax policy to deploy a broad range of clean energy and energy efficiency technologies.

“Our national energy policy has been driven in large part by federal tax policy. Energy tax measures have spurred significant private sector investment and have contributed to clean energy industry growth. These sectors collectively support over 3 million jobs in the United States.

“BCSE looks forward to working with the Senate Finance Committee as it considers tax policy this session.”
