Chairman Tiberi and Chairman Boustany Announce Joint Hearing on Energy Tax Policy and Tax Reform

Sep 22, 2011

Focus Of The Hearing:
The hearing will focus on the questions of whether energy policy should be conducted through the tax code, and if so, how best to design provisions that advance the principles of both sustainable energy policy and tax reform.  In asking these questions, the hearing will conduct oversight of the administration of certain existing energy tax provisions to determine whether they have been implemented efficiently and effectively.  It also will consider how the specific case of H.R. 1380, the NAT GAS Act, stacks up against the principles of tax reform and sustainable energy policy.
