Water taxes - a hot issue in Nebraska
December 4, 2008
The Nebraska Supreme Court
has just heard Garey et al. v. Nebraska DNR et al.
, in which a group of landowners have sued a batch of Nebraska environmental agencies and NRDs
over taxes applied to help the state fund its compliance with the Republican River Compact with Colorado and Kansas. Interstate water disputes are growing in prominence as water becomes ever more important to everything from ethanol
and biodiesel production
to cooling data centers.
