house Bill H.R. 404

Allowing Landowners in Western Nebraska to Prepay Irrigation Project Costs

Argument in favor

Brings nearly a half million dollars in the door and affords this water district the same payment options as those around it.

Are we 101% sure that their prepayments go directly to this project and not snatched up somewhere else like defense or "black budget" areas? How much would the difference be if (a) the project was completed on time and (b) the money was carefully invested to grow some income over the remaining construction of the project. It's no different than investing in a college fund for a child only in this case the "child" is the Great State of Nebraska.

This is fair. Land owners shouldn't have this huge bill hanging over their head.

And when they find out that the frackers have used all the water, let's make sure to they can't sue.

Argument opposed

Lower payments mean the difference is being made up somewhere--are taxpayers footing the difference?

How large are these landowners/farmers? If they are big corporate farm corporations then things need to change so the only family farms get the best deal.

No. There pre pay will disappear just like border fence money and SS.

Not until the bill explains who is going to make up the difference.
