School districts seeking to use tax revenue from the wind energy tax only await the Governor’s signature to do so.
The transfer must be done within the 10-year time period allowed by law for a district to count its wind energy tax revenue as local effort and must be separately identified so it may not be transferred back to the general fund.
Deuel Superintendent Chad Schiernbeck said the bill “does not impede on any accountability measures” rather “gives our school board local control” related to the revenue.
ASBSD is monitoring the bill, which heads to Gov. Kristi Noem for review and potential signature into law.
