The tax extenders legislation that includes assistance for biodiesel and wind energy is bogged up in the Senate. Finance Chairman Ron Wyden has been trying to find a way to get the bill moving and Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is hoping that can be accomplished. He says the problem with the hold up isn’t the result of Senator’s opposing the extenders themselves.
Grassley says the major problem lies with the Senate Majority leader who’s not allowing amendments to the process which would help get the measure moving.
He supports the extender’s bill because it contains needed provisions for both biodiesel and wind energy. Disagreement on the legislation has arisen because of a medical devices tax which some want to get rid of while others want it left in.
