A big deal for Nebraska

As Governor, property tax relief has been my number one priority. Every year, I’ve worked with State Senators to increase the amount of state relief from local property taxes. From 2015-2019, we nearly doubled the amount of direct property tax relief from $140 million annually to $275 million annually. This relief helps pay your annual property tax bill. It is applied directly to your property tax bill, and appears as a credit on your statement. I have also proposed many other ideas about how to make structural changes to Nebraska’s property tax system over the years.

2020 Agriculture Summit

This year has been uniquely challenging for rural America and for farmers and ranchers. In the face of new stress and uncertainty, agriculture has continued to feed the world. The men and women in our agriculture sector put in countless hours to provide for the rest of us. It is of the utmost importance these producers have the Wednesday, September 17, 2 tools and resources to continue their efforts, especially in these challenging times. In 0order to hear from producers and exchange ideas, I am happy to host the 2020 Agriculture Summit.

STRAIGHT TALK FROM STEVE

The Nebraska Legislature has now adjourned for the year. I have now completed my fourth session in the Legislature. This was the first time since I have been elected that we completed the full session. In previous years we adjourned three or four days early. Perhaps we should have adjourned early again this year as well, except for the passage of the bill to ban dismemberment abortions. That bill passed on the last day of the session.
