05-10-06 : Senate failed to concur with House amendments 10-10. Eliminates the economic limit factor (ELF) and replaces it with a petroleum production tax (PPT). It levies a 21.5 percent tax on an oil field's net cash flow and provides a 20 percent tax credit for all upstream capital investment that increases oil production. Contains progressivity so the tax rate increases when oil prices are high. A tax credit is also allowed for losses. The production tax takes effect April 1, 2006.
