More on Small Business
Every year, when Congress adjourns for an extended district work period during August, I continue to take the opportunity to travel the district, hold meetings, and find out what is on the minds of Nebraskans across the Third District. This August I met with folks all across the district, from Auburn and Peru to Alliance and Scottsbluff, and many communities in between. I appreciated hearing their insights.
Washington, D.C. - Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) released the below statement following Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to Nebraska on Tuesday to survey damage caused by severe weather and ongoing flooding.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald Trump on Thursday evening signed H.R. 4689, legislation championed by Congressman Adrian Smith (NE-03) and U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) to rollback outdated regulations negatively affecting ag producers in the Nebraska panhandle. The bill passed the House of Representatives in September and the Senate in December.
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) made the following statement after joining President Donald Trump at the White House for the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill.
Today, Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) announced the 2018 Excellence in Economic Development awards. The competition is open to individuals, businesses, and organizations throughout the Third District who strengthen Nebraska’s economy through innovation, hard work, creativity, entrepreneurship, or historic preservation.
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) joined Congresswoman Terri A. Sewell (D-AL) to introduce H.R. 5506, the Physician Assistant Direct Payment Act, to allow physician assistants (PAs) to directly bill Medicare.
Statement by Smith:
Everyone agrees agriculture is important to Nebraska and vital to the U.S. economy. This is why the tax code – and any efforts to reform it – should treat businesses and individuals engaged in farming and ranching to the same benefits as other business sectors across the country. For this reason, when we were working to draft tax reform in the Ways and Means Committee I fought for provisions important to agriculture such as keeping full property tax deductibility for agricultural land as a business expense.
