Groups Push Back on Billion-Dollar Giveaways to Dirty Energy in GOP Tax Bill
WASHINGTON - Today, a coalition of environmental and climate justice, Indigenous rights, public health, consumer, and environmental groups delivered two letters urging lawmakers to oppose including the giveaway of billions of taxpayer dollars to the fossil fuel industry in any tax bill. Advocates are worried that a provision to expand the Section 45Q tax credit to oil, gas, and coal companies could be quietly moved forward during negotiations on House and Senate tax bills.
Oil Change International is a research, communication, and advocacy organization focused on exposing the true costs of fossil fuels and facilitating the coming transition towards clean energy.
