HYDROGEN PRODUCERS could get a tax break in North Dakota.
The state House of Representatives voted in February to exempt sales of hydrogen as well as equipment purchased to produce, store or transport hydrogen from sales and use taxes. The exemption would remain in place from July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2010. The measure passed the state Senate on March 23, but there remain some differences in language to work out.
