FLORIDA'S OFFICE OF ENERGY PROPOSES RESTORING TAX CREDITS

Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam says his department will finish a draft energy bill before the end of the year according to this report from an online line news article in the Current. 

Putnam said in the 2012 session he wants to remove regulatory barriers related to renewable energy and that he wants to restore tax credits originally in s. 212.08, F.S., that expired in 2010.  

Currently, Florida has no written energy policy.  Over the summer, Senate President Mike Haridopolos joined the Governor in calling for a new state energy policy that would open the door to oil and gas drilling off Florida's coast, new nuclear power and increased investment in renewable energy.
