WTE Would Receive Permanent Benefit under Obama Energy Plan

President Barack Obama today called on the country to refocus the nation's energy production on renewable sources. He specifically called for a permanent extension of the section 45 production tax credit for renewable resources, including waste-to-energy. Speaking in Florida, Obama said that this year's rising gasoline prices highlight the need to move to more renewable sources of energy.  "If we're going to take control of our energy future; if we're going to avoid these gas price spikes down the line, then we need a sustained, all-of-the-above strategy that develops every available source of American energy - oil, gas, wind, solar, nuclear, biofuels, and more."
