Support Parity for Natural Gas and Propane Vehicle Programs in the Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Company Accountability Act of 2010
On July 28, 2010, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) introduced the Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Company Accountability Act of 2010 (S. 3663). Included in the bill are financial incentives that offset the manufacture, purchase, and refueling infrastructure costs of natural gas vehicles at the expense of propane alternatives. The propane industry believes there is no credible policy reason to provide incentives to our competitors in the natural gas industry and not apply the same incentives to propane. Any final energy bill should include a more equitable approach to incentivizing alternative fuels and alternative fuel vehicle use, an approach that places natural gas and propane vehicle incentive programs on equal footing.
