LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement following a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) report showing Nebraska has grown in the total number of cattle in the state. The report also notes that Nebraska leads the nation in cattle on feed.
LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and the Nebraska Department of Labor (DOL) applauded the expansion of a key state workforce program to Norfolk. Last year, the State of Nebraska launched an initiative designed to help participants in Nebraska’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps, gain greater financial independence by connecting them to better-paying jobs. The pilot has seen success since it launched in Grand Island in 2016. The program is set to expand to Norfolk, several months ahead of schedule, on February 1, 2018.
Governor Pete Ricketts: “This year, the Legislature has an opportunity to deliver major property tax relief for hardworking Nebraskans. The time is now. I am very willing to work with this committee and all senators who are genuinely interested in providing the needed tax relief provided by this proposal.”
“Simple fairness dictates that government must not raise taxes on families struggling to pay their bills,” President Ronald Reagan declared in his 1984 State of the Union Address. With our state’s high taxes, these words apply to Nebraska now as much as they did to the country then.
