Energy, ag, business groups push for tax credit extensions

More than 50 groups in the energy, agriculture, transportation and other business sectors have banded together to pressure Congress for a multiyear extension of tax provisions set to expire at the end of the year.

In a signed letter sent to Capitol Hill, the organizations emphasize the need for an extension of these for multiple years, rather than just through the following year, in order to provide more certainty to businesses and investors.
