Issues

Tax reform

On February 16, 2013, Governor Dave Heineman asked the Nebraska State Senate to kill two tax reform bills, which had been introduced by Senators Beau McCoy and Brad Ashford on the governor's behalf and referred to the Revenue Committee. LB 405 would repeal the state personal and corporate income taxes while also eliminating $2.4 billion worth of sales tax exemptions.[3] The more limited LB 406 would repeal just the corporate income tax and eliminate $400 million worth of sales tax exemptions while also exempting up to $12,000 of retirement income from the income tax.[4] The Platte Institute for Economic Research, a pro-market think tank, supported eliminating both the personal and corporate income taxes.[5][6] After his proposal met with significant opposition from businesses and others who would have been affected by eliminating the sales tax exemptions, Heineman said he wanted the bills pulled so that Hadley, as Revenue Committee chairman, could develop a more comprehensive tax reform plan. Hadley was skeptical in his comments to the media about the legislature's ability to pass major tax reform in 2013.[7][8]

Endorsement

On September 21, 2011, Senator Deb Fischer announced that Hadley was one of thirteen State Senators in the Nebraska Unicameral to endorse her candidacy for the U.S. Senate.[9]
