Statement from Mark McHargue, President Regarding Passage of Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act
LINCOLN, NEB. – “Nebraska’s farm and ranch families appreciate the efforts of Sen. Deb Fischer and Rep. Don Bacon in getting this important infrastructure package across the finish line and to President Biden’s desk. This important piece of legislation provides needed investments in our nation’s roads/bridges, water projects, broadband infrastructure, and provides much needed regulatory relief to our livestock and insect haulers.”
“This isn’t the bill we would write, but it does take a resounding step forward in addressing our nation’s long-term infrastructure needs. At the same time, our support only extends to the true bipartisan infrastructure package, and we urge Congress to oppose efforts to pass the rushed and high tax version of the reconciliation package.”
The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service, and advocacy efforts. More than 57,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
