SAN JOSE — After a morning of closed-door campaigning here Thursday, President Obama plans to talk about tax credits for clean energy production during a visit to Iowa.
As he focuses on his administration’s efforts to boost job creation, Obama plans to call on Congress to extend tax credits designed to encourage businesses to invest in clean energy production, senior officials said.
Obama is scheduled to make his remarks on a visit to TPI Composites, a global provider of composite wind blades to major turbine manufacturers. The company built a plant in Newton, Iowa, in 2008 and now employs more than 700 people.
Members of the president’s Cabinet and senior administration officials are holding events across the country on the tax credits as they continue their efforts to pressure Congress to take up the president’s “to-do list" for them.
