House Committee to focus on green jobs incentives

The House Ways and Committee plans a hearing April 14 to look into the benefits gained from last year’s Recovery Act incentives and consider possible new incentives. In announcing the hearing, Committee Chairman Sander Levin said, “Investing in energy efficiency and renewable energy has major potential to create new jobs and help our economy recovery. In recent years we have made significant investments in policies to encourage and enhance domestic manufacturing and production of renewable energy as well as the use of more efficient fuel sources. This hearing will examine benefits currently in place and discuss potential for new incentives to further drive job creation, economic growth, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.”
