S.D. Senate Panel Endorses Incentives for Wind Power

(AP)

A South Dakota Senate committee endorsed a measure Thursday that would provide financial incentives to encourage the stalled construction of wind power projects in the state.

The Commerce and Energy Committee voted 6-1 to pass the measure after lawmakers and industry representatives said construction of wind farms has drawn to a standstill in South Dakota because the state imposes much higher taxes during construction than neighboring states do.
