                           Key   Findings

                                Expensing for capital investments would increase new investment and
                                 capital stock turnover, supporting the replacement of old capital with more
                                 environmentally friendly structures, machinery, and equipment.

                                Lowering the cost of investment would eliminate the tax bias against more
                                 capital-intensive energy efficiency improvement projects.

                                Neutral cost recovery for structures would increase apartment building
                                 construction, which benefits the environment thanks to both higher energy
                                 efficiency in apartments relative to single-family homes, and through
                                 increased density, which reduces emissions from transportation.

                                These benefits are in addition to expensing's large impact on economic
                                 growth.
