Nixon Steers From Specifics on Incentives to "Go Green"

At a campaign stop at Springfield's only "Green" shopping center Wednesday, Democratic candidate for Governor Jay Nixon touted the importance of embracing new energy efficient technology, but stopped short of detailing specifics on how he would try to capitalize on the movement as Governor.

From the rooftop of the "Green Circle," Nixon said that progress with such technology could be made "under existing programs," but stopped short of backing a specific incentive plan for businesses. "So that what we're doing is not just merely incentivizing, but we're creating something that has more net economic value than merely just giving a tax break or a tax credit," Nixon said.

"I don't have a specific proposal today about which particular tax credit could yield the biggest benefit, but I do think there are programs out there," he said.
