Nebraska Craft Beer Friends
Please direct your attention to LB632, a bill introduced in the Nebraska State Legislature on January 18th, 2017. At its heart, this bill stands to affect the craft brewing industry by stripping away rights gained under LB1105 in 2016!
— This bill is a job killer: It will curtail the expansion of the craft beer industry and impair our ability to invest in our communities, in agribusiness that supports our industry, and in manufacturing that supports our work.
— This bill was negotiated in secret without the input of industry partners and moved the goalposts established a year ago.
— This bill strips away existing rights that will likely lead to litigation against the state and impose a liability on the state coffers.
