Statement from Senator Lowe Finney; April 18, 2012:
“The decision by the Comptroller’s office to table a massive 6,000 percent tax increase on the solar industry is a prudent one. Small business owners and clean energy investors have made clear cases for how such an increase would cripple our fastest growing jobs sector.
“An open study committee is the best way to continue the conversation with those who would be most affected. As the Comptroller’s office is properly concerned about revenue consistency among clean energy sectors, I hope they’ll consider cutting other taxes instead of raising taxes on small businesses.”
