At the beginning of the 2013 legislative session, Kintner served on the following committees:
|Nebraska Committee Assignments, 2013|
UN Agenda 21
On January 22, 2013, Kintner introduced LB482, which would prevent the state from "adopting policy recommendations that infringe on private property rights without due process as prescribed." The bill comes in response to Agenda 21, a non-binding United Nations environmental land-use treaty which conservatives argue diminishes national and state sovereignty, as well as property rights. Kintner also expressed practical opposition to Agenda 21, saying that plans for urban "green space" were not optimal, and that the program would be "catastrophic to the state" by converting farmland to wilderness. Fellow legislator Ernie Chambers decried the bill as being "in the category of those people who wear tin-foil hats for protection from I don't know what," as well as "monkey-see, monkey do legislation," noting similar legislation in other states. Another legislator, Danielle Conrad, said: "Those concerned about these issues demonstrate a fundamental misunderstanding of our system of government and a clear disregard for well-established constitutional protections for private property rights."
Kintner's website highlights the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"I am committed to continuing the effort to keep our state’s economy diverse and vibrant. We need to provide opportunities to maintain and expand high quality jobs for our citizens with a tax and regulatory structure that encourages investment. "
- Excerpt:"I believe one part of the problem with our high property taxes involves the property tax assessment practices. I am absolutely opposed to how the Sarpy County Assessor is valuing the farm site/first acre and I will introduce a state law change to limit assessors’ authority in that area."
- Excerpt:" I will work to sustain the dynamic public, private and home school educational opportunities for our children. I want to make sure our families and educators have all the tools they need to provide a high quality education."
Balanced Budget Amendment
- Excerpt:"I support a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. If Congress passes one, it will then be sent to the states for ratification. I will immediately introduce it in the Legislature and work diligently to make sure it is ratified. "
