WY House Sort of Kills Wind-Tax Bill

by

The following is from the Cowboy State Free Press:

The Wyoming House killed legislation today intended to create a new system for taxing wind generation of commercial electricity.

Rep. Matt Teeters, R-Lingle, said he intends to ask for a reconsideration of the bill tomorrow, however.

House Bill 191 would have combined a pending $1-per-megawatt-hour wind-generation tax and the sales tax on wind energy equipment into one $3-per-megawatt-hour excise tax.


The bill also would have created a $15 million impact assistance account to help local governments pay for infrastructure costs associated with wind energy projects.

The House vote tied at 29-29. So the bill dies.
