“We have indicated from the beginning that we are open to conversations about Nebraska tax policy and reform and share an interest in creating jobs and growing Nebraska’s economy. We will continue to be open to dialogue on this issue and will focus our attention on ensuring property tax reform is a part of any tax reform conversations moving forward.”

“We greatly appreciate the efforts of the many farmers and ranchers who took the time and effort to share how these proposals would have harmed their family operations and rural communities. We also want to share our appreciation to the Governor and members of the Legislature for hearing those concerns and taking action to re-evaluate the starting point for this discussion.”

“The strength of Nebraska’s economy lies in maintaining a healthy agriculture economy, and it is critical that we continue to recognize that reality moving forward.”
