Nebraska State Senators return to Lincoln Thursday to put the finishing touches on their 2014 session.  The State Cattlemen’s Association is pleased with how most of the session went. Legislative Director Laura Field says although they didn’t get everything approved they wanted felt they made progress with most of the measures that got approved.

Field says one of the more important issues they’ll be following up on will be part of a summer study committee’s work and that is education funding.

Field says she supports the State Farm Bureau’s unveiling of their new Ag teachers loan and scholarship program that was recently announced. She’s hoping other ag groups will come forward with ways to help both the state’s ag students and educators in the future.
