State Rep. Ed Soliday’s (R-Valparaiso) legislation incentivizing data centers to locate in Indiana recently advanced out of the House of Representatives. Data centers house servers that collect, store and process large amounts of data. According to Soliday, data centers can lead to significant economic growth through job creation and development of other data-dependent industries. Under this legislation, cities and counties may offer property tax exemptions and the state may offer sales tax exemptions to data centers planning to invest at least $25 million.
