The author talks about the Senate vote for renewable-energy credits and renewable-power industry tax breaks for Nevada. Senator Harry Reid, Democrat-Nevada voted for the renewable-energy tax credits while Senator John Ensign, Republican-Nevada voted against it since he says that involves tax increases that will out balance the tax benefits. The author says that both senators need to work hard for the bill to help Nevada's new power industry.
