Vote on Biodiesel Tax Credit Delayed

The vote on the bill containing the biodiesel tax credit and other agricultural related issues has been delayed till after the Memorial Day recess. The biodiesel tax credit expired at the beginning of the year and the biodiesel industry has been pushing lawmakers to reinstate the credit before going on recess.

Representative Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, Blue Dog Coalition co-chairwoman, said Thursday that given the timetable the House is on - they’ll have to grapple with the tax extenders measure after Memorial Day. Herseth Sandlin says part of the problem is leadership was shy of the votes needed to pass the bill.
