Nebraska Political Action Committee
     
 

Donate to your PAC today!

It is time to get down to business; working towards electing Nebraska State Senators that support architects. Decisions that affect our industry are regularly made in the Unicameral. We need your help to build the AIA Nebraska Political Action Committee war chest for this upcoming election, as well as future ones! Your donation affords AIA Nebraska an opportunity to ensure that the issues and initiatives, as well as the candidates who support them are recognized and represented in the Nebraska Legislature.  

Term limits are affecting key leadership positions this upcoming year. Senators elected this year must be able to move into leadership roles rather quickly. Elections are always important; however this year’s will have a greater impact.

Since this is the first general election following redistricting in 2011, even incumbents may have a different constituency than they had when they first ran and it will be more important for them to get their message to new voters in their districts.

The AIA Nebraska Political Action Committee is a tool to ensure your investment will have an impact on key races across the State of Nebraska.  We continue to support candidates that are pro-design, supportive of economic development and business.

  • Occupational sales tax on professional firms including architectural firms (Defeated)
  • Taxation (7.0%) on professional services including architectural services (Defeated) Due to relocation, Nebraska’s total employment could have been reduced by 4,000 jobs, reducing payrolls by $158 million. 
  • Special interest representation on Board of Engineers and Architects (Defeated) The suggested additional directors were representatives of special interest organizations having no formal education or experience in protecting the health, safety and welfare of Nebraskans.
  • Registration and regulation of interior designers (Defeated) | Adopt interior designers certification act (Defeated) In reality this legislation is a practice act, enabling interior designers to practice interior architecture, without training, education and ability to protect the health, safety & welfare of Nebraskans.
  • Provide a moratorium on new hospital renovation (Defeated specific time period.)
  • Update Energy Codes (Adopted) 
  • Engineers and Architects Regulation Act | Cross Discipline Practice (Defeated cross discipline reference)
