LINCOLN, NEB. – “Sen. Tom Briese has been a fantastic advocate for farmers and ranchers throughout Nebraska for seven years.

A champion for property tax relief and rural Nebraska, Nebraska Farm Bureau is encouraged by the prioritizing of public servants who understand the impact property taxes have on those who produce our food, fiber, and fuel.”
