Wind, Solar Bills Move Through Senate, E15 Delayed

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Democrats are pushing to pass a package of bills designed to increase the state's production of energy from solar power, wind and renewable fuels.

The wind and solar bills passed the Senate without opposition Thursday and were sent to the House, but the biofuels bill was delayed by Senate Republican leader Bill Dix, who says he wants more time to study it. The measure is estimated to cost $23 million over six years.

The bill increases the tax credit for E15 to 10 cents per gallon from June 1 through Sept. 15. During the remaining months the credit is 3 cents. The fuel must be reformulated during summer when it's more volatile, increasing distributors' costs.

Democratic Sen. Robb Hogg says it will help encourage use of E15 year around.
