Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley suggested he’d throw his weight around to alter provisions in the House-passed bill that would change qualification terms for some renewable energy projects and trim the renewable production tax credit. “I would think they’d be embarrassed of even putting it in,” he told reporters. “What is there about wind that would cause them to do something that they haven’t done for anything else?” Grassley also said changing the tax credits went against a promise he’d received from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin back in January. A coalition of right-of-center clean energy groups sent a letter outlining their own concerns about the House and Senate bills on Tuesday.
