Dear Chairmen Hatch and Brady, and Ranking Members Wyden and Neal,

The undersigned organizations represent users, retailers, customers, fleet managers, utilities, and producers of clean alternative transportation fuels.

We ask your support for including a reinstatement of the $0.50/gallon alternative fuels tax credit (AFTC) (26 USC § 6426(d) and § 6427(e)) in a year-end legislative package. The AFTC is a credit of $0.50 per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) of certain transportation fuels, including natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, P Series Fuels, liquefied hydrogen and others. Extending the AFTC for a minimum of two years will allow businesses and customers to plan investment strategies, though a full five-year extension would provide business certainty along with a significant contribution to our nation’s economic growth.

Extending the AFTC promotes increased private-sector investment in infrastructure and equipment, which leads to more jobs and economic output. Renewal of the AFTC also will bring significant environmental benefits and enhance our energy independence by lowering our dependence on foreign oil.

Thank you for your continued support for the AFTC and for the use of cleaner burning alternative transportation fuels. We appreciate your consideration of this request.

Sincerely,
