Nebraska Farm Bureau outlines priorities before year's end

Posted:
LINCOLN, NE (AP) -

The Nebraska Farm Bureau says tax provisions and the farm bill are top priorities for the organization heading into the lame duck session of Congress, which began this morning.

The group cites numerous tax provisions set to expire at the end of the year, including estate taxes, capital gains taxes, personal income tax rates, renewable energy tax credits and other tax deductions that affect many farmers and other small business owners.

The Farm Bureau's president says the passage of a 2012 Farm Bill during the session is still a priority for the organization in light of the drought and the fact the 2008 Farm Bill expired at the end of September.
