Nebraska Farm Bureau and several other agriculture groups announced their support for LB 289, this week, a major tax and education funding reform bill brought by the Legislature’s Revenue Committee. First round floor debate began May 7. In order for debate to continue, Revenue Committee Chair Sen. Lou Ann Linehan will need to show 33 votes in support of the measure. While small and medium sized schools support the bill, Omaha, Lincoln, Millard, and other large schools in the state are opposed. Sen. Linehan and Education Committee Chair, Sen. Mike Groene are working with those interests to find a compromise to help move the measure forward. Contact your state senator to offer support for LB 289 and help deliver tax relief!
