LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A proposed new ammunition tax is drawing opposition from Nebraska gun-rights teams, trade organizations and advocates for taxpayers and sportsmen.
Sen. Justin Wayne of Omaha offered the measure Wednesday to the Legislature’s Revenue Committee, pronouncing he sought after a public dialogue at the factor. Wayne says he doesn’t plan to pursue it this yr.
The invoice would generate an estimated $four.1 million in the approaching fiscal yr, which might pass to flora and fauna conservation and violence prevention budget. Ammunition is already matter to the state’s gross sales tax.
Lincoln Independent Business Association President Coby Mach says the regulation would harm companies that promote ammunition.
Sen. Mike Groene of North Platte when put next the invoice to a ballot tax, arguing that each taxes have an effect on constitutional rights.
No one spoke in desire of the invoice.
