Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad and Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee have written a letter to Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid, Senate Republican Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Rep. John Boehner and House Democratic Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi urging Congress to promptly pass a multiyear extension of the wind energy production tax credit (PTC).

‘The United States has some of the best wind resources in the world, but our lack of long-term national policies hinders our ability to develop them fully,’ the governors stated in the letter. ‘Without policy certainty, investors, developers and manufacturers will move projects and jobs elsewhere.’
