Kansas House of Representatives Bill Provides Property Tax Exemption for New or Expanded Nuclear Energy Facilities

The Kansas House of Representatives on Feb. 5, 2007, passed a bill exempting new or expanded nuclear generation facilities from state property taxes. The bill approves property tax exemptions for a period of 10 years from the start of construction. For existing facilities, the tax break will apply to those projects that expand nuclear generating capacity by a minimum of 10 percent.
