Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s office says she plans to sign legislation eliminating sales taxes on electricity bought by manufacturers.

Brewer plans to hold a signing ceremony Friday morning at the state Capitol to sign Senate Bill 1413.

Brewer called for the tax cut in her State of the State address in January. She says it’s needed to make Arizona more competitive and draw new manufacturing to the state. It is expected to cost the state general fund $17 million a year.

A second bill granting a multimillion-dollar tax credit to Apple, Inc., if it installs a solar plant worth at least $300 million at its planned Mesa sapphire glass factory is awaiting action. Brewer’s office hasn’t said if she also will sign SB1484.

Some conservative lawmakers criticized that proposal.
