Voting Along Political Lines the Extension of the 1603 Treasury Program was Defeated

The Stabenow (D-MI) amendment, which would have extended the 1603 Treasury Program and a host of other renewable incentives, was rejected by a 49-49 vote. All the Republican senators voted against the amendment while the Democrats voted for the amendment except for the two Democratic senators from Virginia. The vote was 49 to 49. It required 6o votes for passage.

The good news was the the Senate also rejected the DeMint (R-SC) amendment by a 26-72 margin. The DeMint amendment would have rescinded a host of clean energy tax incentives, including the solar ITC.
