AAN is a member of the Nebraska Association of Commercial Property Owners (NACPO) and works with NACPO’s lobbyists to advocate on behalf of the apartment industry and commercial property industry in Nebraska. AAN takes the same position as NACPO on legislation introduced and debated at the Nebraska Legislature.
Below we are providing you with the updated list of bills that are on our watch list. Please note two bills in particular that were passed and signed by the Governor.
LB275 – Allow landowners to remove abandoned vehicles off of private property.
LB874 – Provides changes to the Community Development Law.
The bills that are marked “Committee” in the Status column will, more than likely, not see any action this legislative session.
With the concentration of the Senators being on the budget, it will be difficult for any bill that is out of committee and on the floor to see any action, as well.
AAN and NACPO also played defense on several issues this year. A variety of harmful measures to Tax Increment Financing were introduced but were held in committee by the Urban Affairs Committee. Additionally, efforts were made to suspend or end the State Historic Tax Credit and the Revenue Committee actually advanced a tax package bill that included eliminating the credit. That package (LB 461) stalled on the first round of debate when it was filibustered. NACPO Board Member David Levy was a big help in fighting off attacks to both TIF and the Historic Tax Credit.
