73 Republicans Still Support Natural-Gas Subsidies

From the Examiner:

A number of Republicans have fled from a $5 billion bill to boost natural gas subsidies, but at a time when the party has been talking a big game about reducing government waste, sadly, 73 House Republicans are still backing the measure.

The NAT GAS Act would offer tax subsidies of up to $7,500 for standard passenger cars and $64,000 for large trucks that are capable of using natural gas. On top of this, gas stations that install natural gas pumps could be eligible for credits as high as $100,000.
