Open Sky Policy Institute director to address Norfolk Rotarians

NORFOLK -  Nebraska needs to look at taxing more services.  That’s according to Open Sky Policy Institute Executive Director Renee Fry who will be in Norfolk Tuesday to address the Norfolk Rotary Club.  Fry says the Open Sky Institute, which was founded two years ago, has been working with Nebraska lawmakers closely on the state’s tax code.  She says the Open Sky Institute and many state lawmakers are concerned with Nebraska’s property tax rates which have risen faster than inflation.  She says revenue collected by taxing more services could be used to address property tax reform.  Fry will talk at the Rotarian’s noon meeting Tuesday at the Time Square Event Center.  Rotary President Stan Christensen says the public is invited.  The cost for the lunch is $7 and free-will donations will be accepted.
