A controversial bill that would would halt development of industrial wind farms in Idaho for two years narrowly made its was out of the House Local Government Committee by a vote of 6-5 and now goes to the full House.  The bill would kill any future wind development in Idaho (at least for two years), and may put the breaks

Two bills were introduced in the Idaho legislature last week, both of which could significantly impact the wind industry in Idaho.  The first, H250, extends a sales or use tax rebate available to purchasers of qualifying machinery and equipment used in generating electricity from renewable resources.  The rebate is currently set to expire as of July
