Legislature address several topics as session end nears 

The state Legislature wrapped up its 2005-06 session Thursday and early Friday by sending dozens of bills to Gov. Jennifer Granholm. Among them:

WIND POWER: A bill that would offer a tax credit for harnessing wind energy overwhelmingly passed the House and is headed to Granholm’s desk.

The legislation would provide a tax credit of 1.5 cents per kilowatt-hour of energy generated for a taxpayer who owns a windmill or wind turbine, with no taxpayer receiving a credit of more than $750,000 per year.

Michigan is one of the nation’s windiest states and could benefit by reducing dependence on oil and lessening pollution, said the bill’s sponsor, Republican Rep. John Moolenaar of Midland.
