Energy Efficient Tax Credits for MH/MOD Defeated

March 15th, 2012 Comments off

From Washington, D.C. the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) tells the Stabenow amendment to the Senate’s surface transportation reauthorization legislation (S.1813), which would have extended the energy efficient tax credits for MH and Mod, did not get the required 60 votes needed for passage. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) led the opposition to a 49-49 deadlock. MHI says proponents will regroup and begin working with legislators including Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME), Sen Max Baucus (D-MT), and Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) to renew the six credits. Under the New Energy Efficient Home Credit, manufacturers of ENERGY STAR homes received $1,000 and modular home builders received $2,000, but that expired Dec. 31, 2011. MHI strongly suggests contacting your representative in Congress to support the extension.
