Our Executive Director, Haley Nolde, testified in opposition of LB 1413 at a hearing Tuesday, Jan. 30th in Lincoln. Sections 26-29 of the bill aim to transfer a total of $3 million from the Waste and Litter Reduction and Recycling Funds into the General Fund. Many of our members, partners, and friends are beneficiaries of the grant projects made possible by these programs. Additionally, the $495 million economic impact of recycling in Nebraska is catalyzed largely through grants.  

Over 3 dozen online comments were submitted in opposition and several in-person testimonies. NRC will release further information as we work on this matter! If you have questions or concerns please reach out to Haley at [email protected]
