LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Gov. Dave Heineman is voicing support for a bill that would exempt agricultural repair and replacement parts from Nebraska’s sales tax.

The Republican governor also repeated his call on Monday for lowering the taxable land value of farmland from 75 percent to 65 percent. Heineman says the state can afford tax relief.

He says Nebraskans are being overtaxed right now and that he is determined to get tax relief for Nebraskans.

The tax exemption bill for agricultural repairs was introduced by state Sen. Annette Dubas of Fullerton. It advanced through a first-round vote last week.

The bill is LB96.
