SWANA Briefs White House on LFG Tax Credits

Washington, D.C. -- Thomas Hadden, a member of the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) and the executive director of the Iowa Metro Waste Authority, Des Moines, met with Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham and White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card Thursday to discuss the merits of adopting landfill gas (LFG) tax credits. SWANA says passing landfill gas tax credits is one of the association’s major legislative priorities. At the briefing, Hadden stressed the potential development of 600 additional LFG sites if the LFG tax credit in the House Energy bill is passed.
