Two bills designed to attract a billion-dollar data center to Nebraska have won final approval in the Legislature.
Lawmakers passed a measure Thursday that would offer tax breaks
to data center projects that invest at least $200 million in new
money and hire at least 30 new employees.
They also gave final backing to a measure that would allow
public power districts in Nebraska to negotiate rates below the
standard retail rate.
The bill was spurred by plans for a data center project known
only as "Project Edge." The name of the company involved and
details have not been revealed, but state officials say
construction could begin in May.
