Nebraska Farm Bureau Approves Policy On Taxes, Water And Privacy Information

 

Nebraska Farm Bureau members passed several resolutions at their annual convention in Kearney this week. Vice President of Government Relations Jay Rempe says one of the key policies calls for pushing the Unicameral to pass property tax relief.

Rempe says one of their national resolutions is in support of producer privacy and ownership of their proprietary information.

He says Farm Bureau delegates also approved policy calling for state and local governments to fund water projects and programs throughout the state. He says they also passed a resolution supporting an increase in the renewable fuel volume obligations challenging EPA’s recent proposal to lower those.
