Brenda starts out talking about NCBA Summer Business meeting in Denver a couple of weeks ago. “We got some significant things adopted that Nebraska brought.”

  • Rural Broadband
  • Stepped up basis
  • Trade
  • Foreign animal disease outbreak
  • Robust price discovery

Kansas Livestock Association and Texas Cattle Feeders Association brought opposing policy to NC policy in the live cattle marketing committee. After about 6 hours of debate and good discussion a compromise was reached on this policy.

In State: Property tax LB 1107 got 43 votes in the first round. It has 3 more rounds to go. This is another compromise between urban and rural senators.
