Sales tax exemption bill for wind farms passed by Unicameral

A bill that would use sales tax exemptions to attract wind farms to Nebraska has won final approval from lawmakers. Senators voted 38-2 on Wednesday to pass the measure, as a Kansas-based company considers developing a wind farm in Dixon County, near the Iowa and South Dakota border.

Sen. Steve Lathrop of Omaha says his bill is designed to keep Nebraska competitive with other high-wind states in the Plains that have offered tax incentives. Nebraska currently charges a sales tax on all equipment and materials used in wind-energy projects.

Nebraska ranks as a top state in its potential to generate wind power, but 26th in what it can produce right now.

Lawmakers rejected a proposed amendment that would have required companies to purchase Nebraska-made materials.
