NATSO, SIGMA Urge Lawmakers to Extend Biodiesel Tax Credit in Budget Reconciliation

NATSO, the national association representing truckstops, travel plazas, and off-highway fuel retailers, along with SIGMA: America’s Leading Fuel Marketers, and representatives of the trucking and convenience store industries, urged lawmakers to extend the $1 per gallon biodiesel tax credit in the upcoming budget reconciliation package and ensure tax parity for any new credits awarded for transportation fuels that compete for the same feedstocks. The organizations specifically warned that more favorable tax treatment to other transportation fuels, such as sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), would increase diesel prices as well as carbon emissions, since SAF production is a less efficient process than renewable diesel and biodiesel production. More

NATSO Analysis: Deep Dive Into Reconciliation Status Members Only Join or Login

During the budget reconciliation process, different committees are pursuing different policies within their respective jurisdictions.  The overall expected cost of the policy changes currently being pursued is about $3.5 trillion.  It is expected that once each committee addresses the items within their jurisdiction, House and Senate leadership will negotiate this number down to something closer to $1.5 trillion - $2 trillion.  NATSO provides an overview of what each committee is working on. If  the reconciliation passes, it will very likely leave out at least some of the items discussed below, and scale back the cost or duration of some programs as part of that House-Senate negotiation process.  That being said, it's not unlikely that Democrats will find a way to pass much of this into law.  More
