North Dakota lawmakers have approved a bill providing a sales tax exemption for the construction of fertilizer or chemical processing facilities.

Senate Bill 2035 was sent to Gov. Jack Dalrymple Tuesday. It provides that "tangible personal property" used in the construction of a fertilizer or chemical processing facility can be exempt from sales tax, as long as the owner of the plant has an air quality permit from the state by July 2019.

A $2 billion nitrogen fertilizer plant, Northern Plains Nitrogen, is planned to be constructed northwest of Grand Forks. Rep. Craig Headland, R-Montpelier, said on the House floor Friday the bill would help some of the largest economic development projects in North Dakota's history.

The bill passed the House Friday with 81 lawmakers voting in favor and 10 dissenting.
