State Rep. Randy Frye (R-Greensburg) recently attended a Decatur, Indiana, County Council to talk about the bill signed into law making “new farm equipment and new agricultural improvements eligible for local tax abatement.”

In early March, Governor Eric Holcomb signed Senate Bill 119.

“As I understand this bill, it’s ya’ll’s choice,” Frye said. “The State is not going to come down here and tell you who to give an abatement to or not – it’s a tool for the counties to use as they see fit to promote and assist agriculture. And knowing Decatur County, as many of you do, we have a lot of agriculture here. That’s the explanation I got from people above my pay grade in Ways and Means who understand it in great detail,” Frye finished. “I hope it helps.”
