Wednesday, March 24, 2010 - 2:00AM

A group of 19 governors this week sent a letter to President Barack Obama urging expansion of the Section 48C Advanced Energy Manufacturing Tax Credit that was created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. In January, $2.3 billion was awarded under the program to recipients in 43 states to support manufacturing energy projects.

In their letter, the governors discuss the success of the tax credit and describe the economic benefits that would come with an expansion.
