Electricity Restructuring and Tax-Exempt Bonds: Economic Analysis of Legislative Proposals

Electricity Restructuring and Tax-Exempt Bonds: Economic Analysis of Legislative Proposals

Date: January 20, 2000
Creator: Zimmerman, Dennis
Description: Tax-exempt bonds reduce public power's interest cost on debt and enable it to lower the price of electricity. This subsidy makes taxpayers better off only if the private market fails to provide the correct amount of electricity. In general, the private market can provide the correct amount of electricity; in those cases when it can not, the tax-exempt bond subsidy is unlikely to correct the problem. Tax-exempt bond legislation has been consistent with this perspective that an interest subsidy for electricity production does not correct a market failure; its focus has been to prohibit the spread of subsidized public power beyond its traditional service areas.

Congress and the Fusion Energy Sciences Program: A Historical Analysis

Congress and the Fusion Energy Sciences Program: A Historical Analysis

Date: January 31, 2000
Creator: Rowberg, Richard E
Description: The U.S. government has been funding research into controlled thermonuclear fusion since 1951. Since 1957, when the program was declassified, a public record is available in the form of appropriations and authorization reports presenting congressional decisions about fusion research. This report analyzes that record in order to assess how the program may fare in the future. The program recently underwent a major restructuring at the direction of Congress, and is currently establishing plans about how to proceed toward the goal of developing a practical fusion powerplant. These plans are likely to be the subject of close congressional scrutiny during review of the FY2001 budget request from the Department of Energy
