Congress Could Subsidize Kemper Co Plant

Mississippi Power’s Kemper County Power Plant could soon be getting a little help from the government. A new report warns that congress could soon adopt tax changes that could subsidize the plant by an additional 700 million to 4 point 5 billion dollars. That report was released today by the environmental group “Friends of the Earth” AMD the anti-subsidy group “Taxpayers for Common Sense”. Both groups warn members of congress could enact these changes before the end of the year as a part of a bigger tax bill. The now 7 billion dollar plant has received 400 million dollars in federal aid.
