Provision to remove TransAlta’s tax subsidy moving in the Senate

This week, the Senate released its budget package proposal. Included in the proposal was a provision to eliminate TransAlta’s $10 million tax break. Yeah, you heard that right – the state’s biggest polluter gets a $10 million tax break!

But hopefully not for long. The Senate could vote on this proposal as early as this weekend. Maybe they’ll vote while we’re all down their for our Day of Action!

You can read more about the provision, and all the sticky political implications here, here, and here.
