Pro-sporting event tickets will now carry a new fee. Tax credits for the wind industry will be eliminated. Film incentives will be limited. Oil and gas industry incentives will be reduced as well.

State Questions 780 and 781 will also go into effect, reclassifying low-level drug and theft charges as misdemeanors.
