Tax break for biodiesel advances in South Dakota

The South Dakota Senate approved a bill that would provide a tax break for biodiesel use. A separate effort to repeal a tax break on ethanol use failed. Senators unanimously approved a bill to reduce the fuel tax on diesel that contains at least 5 percent biodiesel by 2 cents per gallon. The fuel tax applied to regular gasoline and diesel now is 22 cents per gallon. The bill – SB148 – would trim the per-gallon tax on biodiesel to 20 cents.
