LINCOLN, NEB. – Steve Halloran of Hastings has been named a ‘Friend of Agriculture’ by NFBF-PAC, Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation’s political action committee. Halloran is seeking to represent District 33 in the Nebraska Legislature.

“Steve Halloran shares many of the core values of the Nebraska Farm Bureau and its members and we are pleased to include him among those receiving our ‘Friend of Agriculture’ endorsement,” said Mark McHargue, NFBF-PAC committee chair Oct. 26.

Farm Bureau’s “Friend of Agriculture” designation is given to selected candidates for public office based on their commitment to and positions on agricultural issues, qualifications, previous experience, communication abilities and their ability to represent their district.

According to McHargue, Halloran would bring a wide array of experiences to the Nebraska Legislature, including experience as a business owner, along with being an individual who has strong roots in agriculture.

“It’s important to have people in the Legislature who have an understanding of agriculture and the role it plays in the well-being of our state. Steve brings that to the table. He also understands the importance of having sound tax policy and the need to address property taxes, as well as other issues important to our members, such as education and economic development,” said McHargue.

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 61,000 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.
