While federal tax rebates for hybrid cars decreasing and then ending over the next few years, it's good to hear that hybrid rebates could double in Pennsylvania if Gov. Edward Rendell (D) gets his way. According to Reuters, Rendell wants to do a few things with a $260 million windfall (from increased tax revenues), including business and family tax cuts, subsidizing seniors' prescription drugs and doubling hybrid rebates to $1,000. Another green proposal is "a sales-tax holiday for consumers who buy energy-efficient appliances," the article says.
In May, Rendell launched the Pennsecurity Fuels Initiative, which is a broad plan to decrease imported fuel use, by using and producing more biofuels, growing crops for those fuels and other initiatives.
