Senate panel nixes tax breaks for greenhouses
PIERRE -- Legislation that sought tax exemptions on fertilizer, pesticide and fuel used by greenhouses was stopped Wednesday.
The Senate Taxation Committee voted 4-3 to kill the proposal from Sen. Tim Begalka, R-Clear Lake.
"My concern is the can of worms it would open -- and whether that's taxable or not," said Sen. Chuck Welke, D-Warner. He voted against it.
