Tax relief for Nebraska’s veterans

This week marks the opening of the First Session of the 106th Nebraska Legislature. As State Senators return to Lincoln, I will be working with them to launch a series of initiatives to help grow opportunities for Nebraskans. Many of these initiatives, along with my budget recommendation to the Legislature, will be highlighted during my annual State of the State address. I encourage you to tune into the address, which will be streamed live at, at 10:00am on January 15, 2019. Ahead of my annual State of the State address, Senators and I will be making some announcements previewing a few of our proposals. Starting this week, I will also be featuring several of these initiatives in my columns.

Nebraska’s veterans stepped up to serve our country, and we want to keep them in the Good Life after they retire. My first proposal would help our state take a big step towards our goal of being the best state in the nation to be a veteran or serve in the military. Last week, the Nebraska Department of Veterans’ Affairs, the Nebraska National Guard, and I unveiled a new plan to deliver expanded tax relief for veterans who receive military retirement benefits.
