The Wisconsin legislature’s budget committee approved a number of bills this week, including a measure to renew the tax credits for the state’s dairy famers who modernize or expand their operations. The tax credits had been set to expire.

 According to a report in the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the committee also approved new credits for food processing and warehousing plants and equipment investments and tax credits on the cost of equipment used to harvest and turn woody biomass products such as plants into fuel. The committee also addressed a number of other fiscally related matters, including tax credits for projects that create economic development.

The bills now head to both legislative bodies for final votes.
