State Sen. Rob Clements   6-7-2019

The 2019 Legislative Session ended on May 31.  It was a busy session with over 250 bills passed of 739 introduced.

One of the highlights is LB 512, which I co-sponsored.  This bill helps those who had property damaged by flooding.  Under prior law, your assessed value was the value on January 1st, even if it was destroyed later.  Now, if you have more than 20% damage, the property will be assessed at the value after the damage.  The damage must occur by June 30th to receive a reduction.

To claim the discount, the owner must file Form 425.  It must be filed with the County Assessor and County Clerk by July 15thForm 425 is available at http://www.revenue.nebraska.gov/PAD/index.html, the Dept. of Revenue website, along with more details regarding the new law.

Property tax relief was an important issue again this session.  I supported LB 289, which addressed property tax reform along with K-12 school funding reform, but it stalled at round one of debate.  LB 289 had several good provisions in it and is heading in the right direction, but the increase in sales tax from 5.50% to 6.00% was opposed by many.  Controls on local spending increases are important for any long-term reform plan to be successful.

We did raise the Property Tax Relief Fund by $51 million, a 22% increase.  That raises it to $275 million for 2019 and $275 million for 2020.  This is a nice increase, but more is needed to reduce the burden on property taxpayers.

LB 183 addressed an important issue regarding school bonding projects.  It lowers agricultural land assessments from 75 percent to 50 percent for the purpose of bond payments, giving those with fewer votes less of the debt payments.  LB 183 advanced to the second round of debate as amended, with my support.

An attempt was then made to amend LB 183 to remove the original bill and add more sales taxes to the property tax credit fund.  Removing good provisions and not including any local spending controls in the new version made it a bill I could not support, and it did not advance.  Both LB 289 and LB 183 will carry over to next January’s session while improvements are worked on over the summer.

LB 720, the Imagine Act was designed to replace our current business incentive program which expires December 31, 2020.  There are many improvements in LB720, providing better tracking and simplicity, but it failed to get 33 votes needed to end debate.  A major factor in its failure was the failure of long term property tax reform.  LB 720 will also carry over to the 2020 session.

Feel free to contact me or my staff for information on issues or if I may be of assistance.  Please reach me at: Senator Rob Clements, State Capitol Rm 812, Lincoln, NE 68509 (402­471­2613), or at my email: rclements@leg.ne.gov.

Free Mobile Food Pantry in Plattsmouth June 21


OMAHA, Neb. June 18, 2019 – The catastrophic floodwaters that swept across Nebraska and western Iowa in March have receded, but we remain vigilant in monitoring area rivers for rising waters yet this spring. Thousands of families continue to seek emergency assistance as homes, businesses, farms, ranches, roads and communities are being rebuilt.

Food Bank for the Heartland is committed to helping those experiencing hardship during this natural disaster and is partnering with Plattsmouth Bible Church to host a free mobile food pantry in Plattsmouth on Friday, June 21 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The mobile pantry will take place at Plattsmouth Bible Church, 1602 1st Ave., Plattsmouth, NE 68048.

“Food Bank for the Heartland has already helped provide more than 440,000 disaster relief meals,” said Brian Barks, president and CEO of Food Bank for the Heartland. “We are grateful for the outpouring of support from individuals, organizations and companies locally and across the county. The Food Bank has been part of this community for 38 years, and we will continue to distribute emergency and supplemental food to our neighbors in need throughout the Heartland. We are pleased to partner with Plattsmouth Bible Church to provide this monthly mobile pantry for individuals and families in Cass County.”

Approximately 5,000 pounds of food will be available for distribution and will include shelf-stable products like pasta, tomato sauce, canned water and rice and perishable items like fresh carrots, corn, and onions among other items. Disaster pantry packs will also be offered. They are 15-pound prepacked boxes filled with various nonperishable items.

Those attending the mobile pantry are asked to bring boxes or bags to assist in carrying the food they receive. Volunteers will be available to help recipients. No identification is required to obtain food.

Food Bank for the Heartland’s Mobile Pantry program delivers food directly to communities that have a high need but limited food resources. In FY 2018, nearly 400 mobile pantries were held across the Food Bank’s 93-county service area helping approximately 47,400 food-insecure households.

The list of other Food Bank supported mobile pantries is updated each month on the organization’s web site. June’s mobile pantry list may be found here:https://foodbankheartland.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/June_Mobiles.pdf.

Information about other disaster relief resources is available on https://foodbankheartland.org/flooding/.
