Legislation Would Make Wind Turbines near Some Military Installations Ineligible for PTC, ITC
Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., Tuesday reintroduced the Protection of Military Airfields from Wind Turbine Encroachment Act (H.R. 649), a bill to make new wind turbines near certain military installations ineligible for the renewable energy production tax credit (PTC) and investment tax credit (ITC). Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, reintroduced S. 201 as companion legislation in the Senate. Collins and Cornyn issued similar companion bills in the last Congress. Both bills died in committee.
