It's time to wake up Nebraska. Our current elected representatives have watched the crisis in our state pick up speed and devastate our family Farmers & Ranchers. A Trade War with China or anyone else who purchases our agribusiness products works directly against, not just our Farmers & Ranchers, but the people of Nebraska as 1 our of every 4 dollars of revenue in our state comes from agriculture.
The cost to Nebraska's Farmers & Ranchers already has reached nearly one billion dollars. Solar energy needs to be brought into the forefront of our Nebraska economy. Our recent Listening Tour told us many things including our Farmers and Ranchers opposition to wind energy. This is not a "Trump-ism", it's our own western Nebraska citizens. Ask them. We did.
