Nebraska Farm Bureau supports property tax proposal

Nebraska Farm Bureau says it supports a proposal by the legislature’s Revenue Committee that seeks to lower property taxes and reform the way Nebraska funds K-12 schools.

According to Farm Bureau president Steve Nelson, LB 974 makes progress in several areas of concern for the organization. Along with property tax relief, Nelson says, the bill also puts the state on the path of taking back responsibility for funding K-12 education. That’s a responsibility that’s been pushed more and more onto property owners over the years, Nelson says.

The Revenue Committee will hold a public hearing on LB 974 Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. Central Time in room 1524 of the State Capitol.
