Panel vote on Nebraska wind-energy bill irks Heineman  

Credit:  Associated Press | March 7, 2013 | www.newstimes.com ~~

A legislative committee has advanced a bill that would provide tax incentives for Nebraska wind farms, drawing the ire of Gov. Dave Heineman.

The renewable energy bill moved out of the Revenue Committee on Thursday with a 5-3 vote. In a statement after the vote, Heineman said the bill would extend “special interest tax breaks” to out-of-state companies.

Heineman said it was “very disappointing” that the committee advanced the wind-energy bill, and he criticized the committee for not focusing more on lowering taxes.

The bill would let certain renewable energy projects collect refunds on the sales taxes they pay, based on how much they invest and the level of ownership by Nebraska residents.

Sen. Galen Hadley of Kearney, the committee chairman, declined to comment.
