WASHINGTON—Congressman Ron Estes (R-KS), Congressman Mike Thompson (D-CA), along with Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) and Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) introduced the Financing Our Future Energy Act today.

“The Financing Our Energy Future Act updates our tax code to allow renewable energy projects to have equal access to capital,” said Rep. Estes. “As a supporter of an all-of-the-above energy strategy for our country, I’m proud to sponsor this bill that will extend vital resources to renewable energy initiatives, creating jobs and contributing to our nation’s dominance in energy production and innovation. I look forward to helping secure passage of this bill in Congress.”
