  • Agriculture
Excerpt: "Since the backbone of the Nebraskan economy lies in its agricultural output, we must work hard for the farmers and ranchers both through legislation and by promoting more extensive trade between Nebraska and the world markets."

Excerpt: "We as a state must introduce new measures in education to guarantee a prosperous economic future."

Renewable energy will be a primary driver of world economic growth, and if Nebraska can become an early haven for these technologies it will be well placed in the future economically and politically."
  • Limited Government
