Carbon Capture and Sequestration Deployment Revenue Act of 2010 - Amends the Internal Revenue Code to:
(1) expand the tax credit for carbon dioxide sequestration to include carbon dioxide that is converted to a stable form in which it is securely and permanently sequestered;
(2) allow a 30% increase in the qualifying advanced coal project tax credit for the incremental cost of carbon capture and sequestration systems;
(3) allow an increase in the carbon dioxide sequestration tax credit for the use of new or retrofit electric utility or industrial units to provide for carbon capture and sequestration in secure geologic storage; and
(4) allow issuers of qualified carbon sequestration bonds income and excise tax credits for payments of interest with respect to such bonds.
Amends the Energy Policy Act of 2005 to provide additional funding for loan guarantees for: (1) constructing or retrofitting new or existing commercial scale electric generation units or industrial facility units for carbon capture and sequestration; and (2) constructing carbon dioxide transmission pipelines to transport carbon dioxide to sequestration sites or to sites where carbon dioxide will be used for hydrocarbon recovery.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
