Several conservative groups on Wednesday urged lawmakers in states without renewable electricity targets to oppose extending a wind energy tax incentive.

They told 158 lawmakers in a letter that keeping the credit “essentially transfers taxpayer dollars from your constituents and subsidizes the states with such mandates.”

The letter is from the American Energy Alliance, Heritage Action for America, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the American Conservative Union, Freedom Action, and American Commitment.
