Property tax relief, broadband expansion and water quality are priorities for the Nebraska Farm Bureau in the upcoming legislative session.
Bruce Rieker, senior director of state policy, tells Brownfield additional property tax relief will help improve bottom lines. “We’ve had some great wins in the last 2 or 3 years, but we have a lot more to do to get things in balance. Our members are happy with tax credits they’ve been getting.”
NEFB is part of a working group selected by Governor-elect Jim Pillen that will discuss how changed the school funding mechanism and Rieker says that is a critical part of lowering taxes.
