BIO asks Congress to address algae-based biofuels.
Biotechnology Industry Organization    Washington, DC 20024
March 5, 2010 Commercialization of algae-based biofuels can create jobs, increase energy security, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Unfortunately, algae-based biofuel developers do not qualify for tax incentives for advanced biofuel development, making it challenging for start-up companies to attract capital required for facility construction. BIO urged Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus and Ranking Member Charles Grassley to extend tax code parity to algae-based biofuels as soon as possible.
Motors Shipments Gain in Fourth Quarter closes out 2009.
National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA)    Rosslyn, VA 22209
March 5, 2010 NEMA's Motors Shipments Index (MSI) increased 6.1% during fourth quarter of 2009, marking its second consecutive gain. Demand for motors, however, remains weak; MSI is still 5.7% below posted level from 2008 Q4. Inflation- and seasonally-adjusted shipments of fractional horsepower motors rose for third consecutive quarter, and integral horsepower motors saw their second increase in past 7 quarters. Surging exports and recent turn in inventory cycle primarily support rebound.
RIA/IESO Standard addresses soot and char in HVAC systems.

EBCI for future North American conditions slipped 7.7 points in February to 70.8, but is ahead of 50-point mark indicative of improved business environment. Based on index for future conditions, six-month outlook remains optimistic.
John Horsley makes statement on use of federal highway funds.
American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials    Washington, DC 20001
March 5, 2010 According to John Horsley, AASHTO Executive Director, state transportation officials have achieved goal of obligating every dime of federal-aid highway funds that were made available last year under American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The more than 12,000 highway recovery projects are evidence that transportation investment pays off by providing good-paying jobs and long-lasting improvements. States can repeat this effort if Congress provides additional resources for highways and transit.

Trade Surplus shows value of US Free Trade Agreements.
National Association Of Manufacturers (NAM)    Washington, DC 20004
March 4, 2010 US Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) have resulted in trade surplus for US manufactured goods for second year in a row. US manufactured goods exports to NAFTA and CAFTA as well as other FTAs exceeded imports by $21 billion in 2008 and extended their surplus to $26 billion in 2009. This two-year surplus of nearly $50 billion stands in contrast to what trade naysayers have been telling Congress, blaming trade agreements as reason for trade deficit.
