Amy Klobuchar details plan to boost Iowa's energy and agriculture industries, end child poverty


Klobuchar told the Des Moines Register she’d renew subsidies for wind production, known as the production tax credit (PTC). The legislation, originally co-authored by U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, is set to expire this year and provides capital for new wind projects, according to the American Wind Energy Association.

“Renewable energies and renewable fuel have become a homegrown job generator for the Midwest and particularly our two states, and that includes biofuels, wind, and solar, and the manufacturing that comes with it,” Klobuchar said Wednesday.
