Latham Statement on Announced Layoffs at Iowa Wind Facility


Location: Des Moines, IA

Iowa Congressman Tom Latham issued the following statement Tuesday in response to news reports of announced layoffs at a Ft. Madison wind plant:

"Washington's inaction on extending the wind energy tax credit has frozen wind energy investment and employers in place over the past several months. Now we are unfortunately seeing the disastrous and real-life effects of this inaction on a hardworking and dedicated workforce in Iowa. I will continue to fight for the immediate continuation of these important tax credits and am ready to work with any of my colleagues -- regardless of party label -- who are willing to stand with me to make it happen."
