"Bi-partisanship" has been a rare word in Washington lately, so at this week's National Governors Association Conference it was a welcome sight to see cross-aisle cooperation between Republican and Democratic governors in supporting a four-year extension of renewable energy production tax credit (PTC).
Gov. Peter Shumlin of Vermont led the charge at the conference, saying “Manufacturers can’t continue to grow unless they have predictability, and The President agrees with us. There was bipartisan agreement among the governors that these credits should be extended on a four-year basis, not a one-year basis,” he added. “To get any kind of bipartisan agreement in this town is big.”
Shumlin, along with Gov. Christie of New Jersey told President Obama earlier this week that the governors would partner with him on the production tax extension after reaching a consensus on a letter to Congress and other Republican governors.
