Political Action Campaign
The Nebraska Grain and Feed Association PAC is a voluntary political action committee committed to improving and protecting the grain and feed industries in Nebraska. It’s a vehicle to financially support state office candidates favorable to the industry. Banding together as an industry, we make a united effort to obtain better government through education and political action.
The PAC is funded by member contributions. These funds are used to support candidates and those in political office in Nebraska whose goals best exemplify the purpose of the council.
The NeGFA PAC serves the following purposes:
- To promote continuous improvement of government by encouraging and stimulating members of the industry, and others, to take a more active and effective part in state and local governmental affairs.
- To encourage members of the grain and feed industry, and others, to understand the nature and actions of their government.
- To assist members of the industry, and others, to organize themselves for more effective political action, and for carrying our their other civic responsibilities.
- To finance political efforts supporting Nebraska legislative and constitutional officeholders, candidates (but not Federal officeholders, candidates or committees) that benefit the public by improving and protecting Nebraska agribusiness.
