Nebraska Cattle Group Hires New Legislative Director

 

Nebraska Cattlemen’s Association has hired Laura Field as their State Legislative Executive Director. She replaces Pete McClymont who was promoted to Executive Vice President for the organization. Field who’s hitting the ground running with the start of the Unicameral last week says one area she’s focusing on is trying to get Senators to pass property tax relief for the state’s ranchers this session.

Field says Nebraska Cattlmen’s Association is also working with Senator Tom Hansen to bring forward a bill requiring inspection of exotic meat animals in the state.

Field says they’ll also be following water funding bills. She says at the end of the month their Association will meet to finalize their legislative priorities for the year.
