Letter to Finance Committee on Percentage Depletion Deduction

As the Finance Committee considers possible tax changes in connection with budget reconciliation legislation, the undersigned organizations urge you to retain the presentlaw percentage depletion tax deduction.  The percentage depletion deduction contributes significantly to the role U.S. mineral, coal, natural stone, aggregates, and independent oil and gas producers play in fostering continued American economic prosperity.  Maintaining a strong natural resources production sector and limiting our dependence on foreign production is critical to the growth of the U.S. economy.
