Brewer at the Legislature: Overhaul needed to reduce property taxes

Sen. Tom Brewer -

With the Independence Day holiday behind us, it will be back to work for the Legislature soon. Normally at this stage of the process, I would be a term-limited senator enjoying the effective end of eight regular sessions, although that does not officially happen until a new senator takes the oath in January 2025. As […]

Erdman at the Legislature: EPIC tax fails to get signatures, could come back in future

Sen. Steve Erdman - Jul. 5, 2024

With great disappointment, I must report that the EPIC Option Consumption Tax team did not meet the required signature count to place our two initiatives for constitutional amendments on the November general election ballot.  While the team met the first goal of securing signatures from at least five percent of registered voters in 38 counties, […]

Jacobson in the Legislature: Special session shaping up on tax reform

Sen. Mike Jacobson - Jun. 30, 2024

I have received many questions about the likely special session. Although the governor hasn’t officially issued the call for a special session, he has notified the speaker of the legislature, John Arch, that senators should set aside July 25 as the start date and the weeks that follow. Since this notification, the speaker has begun […]

Erdman at the Legislature: Government growth erodes liberty

Sen. Steve Erdman - Jun. 29, 2024

The 4th of July is a time for celebrating our independence as a nation as well as the freedoms we share as American citizens. When the Declaration of Independence was written in 1776, three inalienable rights were mentioned, namely: “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” The one that concerns me the most today is […]

Brewer at the Legislature: Remembering Vietnam

Sen. Tom Brewer -

Last week, I wrote about the dedication of the new Nebraska Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Papillion. I was moved by the sacrifice the United States made in Vietnam. I mentioned last week how much Vietnam vet’s mentorship helped my military career. I was honored to attend with the governor. It reminded me of an older […]
