|Nebraska Agriculture Groups Working on
Comprehensive Tax Reform and Education Funding
Leaders of Nebraska agriculture organizations who represent tens of thousands of Nebraska farmers, ranchers, and livestock feeders have come together to outline principles to guide actions on comprehensive tax/education funding reform for Nebraska. The principles are targeted to addressing Nebraska’s tax system that has led to an imbalance and overreliance on property taxes to fund education and other government services.
It’s important we collectively share where we believe the discussion on tax/education funding reform needs to go. Our principles provide parameters for the critical discussions that need to take place during the coming months leading up to the 2019 legislative session.
The Agriculture Leaders Working Group which developed these principles include member-elected leaders from the Nebraska Cattlemen, Nebraska Corn Growers Association, Nebraska Farm Bureau, Nebraska Pork Producers Association, Nebraska Soybean Association, Nebraska State Dairy Association, and the Nebraska Wheat Growers Association.
As a group they are working on establishing a set of principles to follow as we work toward the 2019 Legislative session.
