A bill that’s been introduced in Nebraska’s Unicameral would further protect the state’s farmers and ranchers from nuisance lawsuits.
But, Nebraska Farmers Union President John Hansen says its unnecessary and tips the balance between zoning regulations, residents and producers. “Because you want to protect the well-being of the neighbors, but you also want to make sure it’s possible for the livestock producer to have an operation.”
LB 662 would amend the Nebraska Right To Farm Act by:
- Limits standing to nearby landowners to allow those who may be affected by an agricultural
operation to seek a remedy while preventing outside organizations with no presence in Nebraska
from using nuisance lawsuits to harass our agricultural producers.
