New Mexico governor and Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson has signed a pledge created by Gov. Chet Culver, D-Iowa, to support the wind production tax credit (PTC).

"Wind power must play a vital role in America's clean energy future," says Richardson. "I long have fought for the advancement of wind power through tax credits and infrastructure development. I also recently worked in conjunction with Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty to create a Governors Windpower Coalition. I call on other governors around the country to join us in our mission to transform America into the Clean Energy Nation."

Culver's pledge supports making the extension of the wind PTC a priority in the next administration's energy plan by including PTC legislation in energy legislation considered by Congress.
