Brown Pushes for U.S. Loans to Manufacturers in Energy Bill

Senator Sherrod Brown, an Ohio Democrat wary of the impact of climate legislation on U.S. manufacturers, says he is pushing to include billions of dollars of loans and tax credits in any energy measure.

Brown said he wants the Senate to add $30 billion in government-backed loans for manufacturers, and is asking the Obama administration for an additional $5 billion in tax credits for companies that invest in clean-energy facilities.
