Manufacturers Get Tax Break

Cheyenne, Wy – A Cheyenne Representative says the legislators were able to use the surplus to benefit economic development, but Pete Illoway thinks a tax break will do a lot of good. The Governor signed a bill that provides a sales tax exemption for machinery. Illoway has worked on the bill for six years and he thinks it will finally help create jobs in Wyoming because it puts the state on par with our neighbors. He says Wyoming is now back in the manufacturing business.
Illoway says funding for air travel improvements and increases to the business council will also help the economy.
