OPGA joined a broad-based coalition of 528 associations, non-profits, and other groups that delivered a letter to Congress encouraging the extension of the expired tax provisions known as the "Tax Extenders." Every NPGA state affiliate joined in co-signing this letter, making propane one of the best represented industries on the letter. In addition to the letter being sent to every Congressional office, the coalition conducted a robust media outreach campaign, including the publishing of full-page ads in the three daily Hill publications.
Several important propane-related provisions are under consideration for extension in this debate. These include the 50 cent per gallon Alternative Fuels Tax Credit and the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property Credit. NPGA continues to work with Members of Congress and their staffs in extending these provisions. The outcome of the negotiations on a Tax Extenders package remain fluid, so NPGA will continue its efforts in having our provisions included.
