Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) and ranking Republican Orrin Hatch (R-UT) sent a Dear Colleague letter on June 27, 2013 proposing a “blank-slate” approach as the legislative starting point for tax reform. They called on their Senate colleagues to provide input and proposals by July 26th on which tax expenditures should be retained or improved in a reformed tax code.

Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) has sponsored a letter in support of retaining long-term tax incentives that will continue to encourage the growth of clean and renewable domestic energy resources.
