Senate Democrats Call for Finance Committee to Hold Energy Hearing

Wednesday, February 12, 2020 - 1:30pm

Twenty-seven Senate Democrats asked Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to hold a hearing on tax policies to incentivize green energy policies. The senators, led by Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden noted in a Feb. 11 letter to Grassley that, “nearly three dozen different energy bills” have been introduced in Congress and highlighted a variety of energy issues. The letter says the Finance Committee has not held a hearing on energy tax policy during the past two sessions of Congress.
