The legislation would provide a 30% investment tax credit for hydropower infrastructure investments related to dam safety. This legislation could save Central customers and other Lake McConaughy beneficiaries tens of millions of dollars on the upcoming project to reface Kingsley Dam.
This bill has passed the Senate and is need of a sponsor to introduce it to the House.
Congressman Adrian Smith is on the Ways and Means Committee and has the power to do this.
Please Contact Congressman Smith and tell him to support this bill!
