Cattle Group Wants Property Tax Relief

Nebraska State Legislators have only about a week left to wrap up their session. The State Cattlemen’s Association is still hoping for property tax relief. Cattlemen’s State Legislative Executive Director Laura Field says while her group is pleased lawmakers included $ 25 million in the property tax relief credit fund they’d like to see more done.

Field says if any more property tax relief is going to be achieved, it’ll have to come through the budget bill. She says had earlier legislation passed it would have helped.

Field says Nebraska Cattlemen members wanted Senators to drop the ag land valuation from 75 percent to 65 percent but that measure failed.
