  • Straight Talk From Steve: Property Valuation Protest Deadline

    Steve Erdman, 47th District|Jun 29, 2023

    Nebraskans are still fuming about their new property valuation notices and I don't blame them one bit. The deadline for filing an appeal is June 30, and this year we could see the highest number of property valuation protests ever filed in the history of our State. High property taxes are the number one reason why people leave our State. Nebraska's property tax system is a failed experiment in taxation.

Jackson Women's Health, the Court restored the right of the American... Full story

  • Letter to the Editor

    Jun 29, 2023

    Dear Editor, I grew up in northeastern Colorado and I now live in the panhandle of Nebraska. My father was a state legislator and spent his life, working in politics and believing that elected officials could make our country a better place. Ten years ago, the Supreme Court’s Shelby County ruling effectively opened the floodgates to voting discrimination with an intensity that has continued to this day. In the 2022 mid-term election, we saw reports of voter intimidation and attempts to silence voters’ voices. And already this year, leg... Full story
