With the end of the year soon approaching, the National Biodiesel Board (NBB) is calling for the reinstating of the biodiesel tax incentive that expired at the end of 2011. With a Congressional lame duck session on the docket for mid-November, the group is encouraging biodiesel stakeholders and supporting Americans to make a final push for the support of the tax incentive.
According to a statement from NBB, the biodiesel incentive has strong bipartisan support and points out that nearly every state in the county has a biodiesel plant. To keep the fuel flowing, NBB is asking Congress to pass a tax incentive package that include’s a $1 per gallon biodiesel tax credit.
So calling all biodiesel supporters. NBB has set up a Fueling Action advocacy website that will provide you with draft letters to Congress and local legislators as well as talking points and other educational tools to help you spread support for biodiesel.
