Podcast: An update on the Nebraska legislative session

In this podcast, Mick Mines, the registered lobbyist for the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, gives an update on the state legislative session in Lincoln.

In the report, recorded a couple weeks ago, Mines noted the passage of LB229, a bill that sets up funding for the Water Resources Cash Fund. He said NeCGA was committed to finding a more comprehensive funding mechanism for the Water Resources Cash Fund that brought together support from all Nebraska stakeholders, including the Nebraska Environmental Trust.

This was accomplished only by the leadership of several Senators, he said, and was one of the corn growers key legislative priorities for the year. (For more on the LB229, click here.)

Mines also briefly discusses the state budget and other measures of interest to corn growers this year.
