"Late last week, the Senate passed its energy bill after defeating a carefully crafted tax package, which contained a plug-in electric drive vehicle credit that EDTA played a major role in putting together. The cause of this setback had nothing to do with electric drive; rather, it was the controversial tax provisions paying for the tax package that proved to be the insurmountable hurdle that day. The effort is far from over, though, and we are continuing to promote our tax priorities in both Houses and on both sides of the aisle."
