Wyoming lawmakers vote against wind tax bill

A Wyoming legislative committee has voted against a bill that would have restructured the state’s policy on taxing wind energy projects to benefit producers.

The members of the Joint Revenue Interim Committee voted against the bill Thursday in Worland.

The bill would have allowed the state to charge impact fees on new wind projects instead of allowing the existing sales tax exemption on wind energy equipment to expire on schedule in January.

The state in January also will begin taxing wind developers $1 per megawatt hour.

Sen. Cale Case, R-Lander, said after the vote that pending wind projects promise to have a huge impact on the state. He says whether they’re built will hinge more on the existence of transmission lines than the state’s tax policy.
