PIERRE — Will the Legislature cure the tax flaw the Big Stone electricity plant? In 2006, lawmakers granted the Big Stone plant a property-tax exemption on the additional environmental equipment needed to meet clean-air regulations, but the law didn’t account for the construction period. HB 1153 covers that gap. Prime sponsor is Rep. Jim Peterson, D-Revillo, while Sen. Tim Begalka, R-Clear Lake, has it in the Senate. The bill also ends the general tax break Jan. 1, 2024.

Is it true there could be organ-donor license plates? The legislation, HB 1162, comes from House Republican leader David Lust of Rapid City but has bipartisan support. Organ donor programs could submit designs to the state Division of Motor Vehicles. The special plates would be free at the time of registration of a vehicle or $10 if requested later.
