Session - 127th Maine Legislature

LR 915
Item 2
Bill Tracking, Additional Documents Chamber Status

Amend the bill by striking out the title and substituting the following:

‘An Act To Extend to Certain Fruit and Vegetable Growers the Sales Tax Exemption for Fuel’

Amend the bill by striking out all of section 1 and inserting the following:

Sec. 1. 36 MRSA §1760, sub-§9-H  is enacted to read:

9-H Fuel used in certain agricultural production.   Ninety-five percent of the sale price of all fuel purchased for use at a greenhouse facility occupying at least 1,000,000 square feet of indoor space operated by an agricultural employer that employs at least 100 employees and is engaged in the year-round commercial production of fruits or vegetables.


This amendment removes language from the bill that deems certain greenhouse facilities to be manufacturing facilities and establishes the proposed sales tax exemption independently of the exemption for manufacturing facilities.
