Economic Justice: Tell your Senators that you oppose LB 405 and 406

Center for Rural Affairs

LB 405 and 406 will force 80% of Nebraskans to pay higher taxes (including farmers, ranchers and entrepreneurs), impose a new “sick tax” that will increase health care costs for all Nebraskans by taxing prescription drugs, medical equipment and hospital rooms, and also increase taxes on the middle class, while giving profitable corporations a free ride. Last week the Revenue Committee of the Nebraska Unicameral heard from rural Nebraska farmers, ranchers, businesses, churches, community organizations and residents who told them that the proposed changes to Nebraska’s tax system hurt rural communities. Your state senators need to hear from you. Find your senator’s contact information here, and call him/her today urging him/her to oppose LB 405 and 406.
