FEATURED STORY: The Ethanol Tax Credit is Set to Expire


The Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit will expire at the end of the year--unless Congress decides to renew it. This week, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack urged congressmen to extend the credit. In response, Senior Fellow Marlo Lewis spearheaded a coalition letter signed by several free market groups asking Congress to allow the ethanol tax credit to expire. Also this week, Research Associate Brian McGraw published an op-ed in The Detroit News entitled "Biofuel or Bust: Ethanol Subsidies Should Be Dropped."
