WASHINGTON — House Ways and Means Committee members earlier on Monday unveiled the provisions of an energy tax bill that would create a new category of “energy security” tax-credit bonds and authorize $1.75 billion of them for state governments.

The bill contains several provisions that were in the Renewable Energy and Job Creation Act of 2008, which was approved by a vote of 263 to 160 in the House in May, and could be voted on by the full House as soon as tomorrow, a committee spokesman said.
