First It Was A Typo In Congress Now It Will Cost Real Jobs

Congressional leaders promised all year to fix a “drafting error” poised to cripple parts of the renewable energy industry. But they haven’t.

THE GOP CAN'T GOVERN

Congress has passed on its last chance to help blue-collar manufacturers of geothermal pumps and fuel cells by making a correction — promised for a year — to a spending bill screwup.

The trouble started in December 2015, when Congress was trying to pass an end-of-year tax and spending bill to run the government for the following year.

Republicans and Democrats struck a deal: In exchange for allowing US oil companies to sell oil abroad after a decades-long export ban, the Republican-controlled Congress extended for their Democratic colleagues a set of tax breaks, which were set to expire at the end of 2016, that encouraged individuals and companies to invest in renewable energy.
