22 Building Trades Leaders Make Late Push for 25c Extension

HARDI and 21 other leading organizations representing manufacturers, distributors, contractors, small businessess, state officials, and energy efficiency interests sent a letter today to Senate leadership urging the full extension of the "25c" tax credit set to expire at the end of the month. 25c provides homeowners with access to a credit up to $1,500 for qualifying energy efficiency improvements, and has been essential to HARDI distributors' modest growth in 2010.

Currently the Senate is debating a tax bill which includes only a one-year extension after a slashing of the credit amount, and HARDI has concerns that the severely paired down extension will provide just extremely limited sales and employment benefit to the HVAC industry. We have little time left to try to get a full extension passed by the Senate. Go to today to do your part to help!
