LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Farm Bureau has endorsed four measures designed to lower property taxes for farmers and ranchers.
President Steve Nelson said Tuesday that the bills would ease the financial burden on producers.
The bills were introduced by Sens. Lydia Brasch of Bancroft and Dan Watermeier of Syracuse. Two measures would lower the taxable value of agricultural land, although one would only apply to schools. Those schools would likely see an increase in state aid.
