BEATRICE, NEBRASKA – Community members are invited to a conversation about legislative issues on Thursday, Jan. 30, in Beatrice.

Hosted by the Center for Rural Affairs, this free event will be held from 6 to 7 p.m., at Stone Hollow Brewing Company, 301 Court St., in Beatrice.

“This session has a number of important topics, including property tax reform, business incentives, and rural broadband,” said Jordan Rasmussen, policy manager with the Center for Rural Affairs. “Yet, we know there are many other issues that impact your family, farm, and community, and we want to hear what is most important to rural Nebraskans.”

Center for Rural Affairs staff will be on hand to visit with residents about ongoing legislation for the Nebraska Legislature’s 2020 session. They will also discuss ways residents can share their voice and interact with representatives effectively. 

“The focus will be on issues impacting rural communities, but community members can ask about any topic,”  Rasmussen said. “Our representatives rely on their constituents to be engaged with them on these issues, so be sure to bring your questions and comments,”

Light desserts will be provided.
