The Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE) will hold a hearing to receive public comment on permanent administrative rules for the Biomass Producer or Collector Tax Credit on Monday, August 23 at 9 a.m. in Salem.
 
ODOE filed temporary rules on July 1, 2010 related to the program’s application and qualification criteria, and establishing the minimum discount value for the transfer of these credits. 
 
The agency requests public comment on whether other options should be considered for achieving the rule’s substantive goals while reducing potential negative economic impacts on business.
 
The meeting will be held at the Oregon State Library, Room 102 & 103, 250 Winter St. SE in Salem.
