February 27, was quite the day. First, we testified in support of Sen. Chambers (you read that right) and his bill to eliminate the .5% local option sales tax. As Nebraska Watchdog writer, Deena Winter, stated, “politics makes strange bedfellows.” You can read about the hearing below:
“What you saw [at the hearing] were individuals representing cites and municipalities,” Chambers said after city officials testified. “Not one was speaking on behalf of the people who will bear this tax.” No one but Americans for Prosperity-Nebraska.
Following the LB 266 hearing, State Director Brad Stevens was on KLIN Drive Time Lincoln and KHAS radio Hastings talking about Medicaid expansion. You can listen to his conversation with DTL’s Kevin Thomas here.
Finally, we finished the day with our Legislative Coffee in Lincoln.
Don’t forget about our Taxpayer Day at the Capital
