Towns across the state typically known for strong farming economies are looking for growth within other industries.
A bill legislators passed earlier this month is making it easier for the city of Aurora to attract new businesses in the technology sector.
It's a goal Aurora leaders have been working toward for more than two years.
"We've got the land, we've got the workforce," Aurora Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Christian Evans says.
City leaders hope the new law will make their goal a reality.
"The bill that just recently passed really just advances the Nebraska advantage incentive program," Evans says.
It provides tax exemptions for companies investing at least $200 million in the construction of new data centers. Evans says Aurora leaders already have the perfect spot picked out.
"We've got a 150 acre parcel that's construction ready," Evans says.
He says the location is perfect for a data center responsible for fueling new technologies.
"Whether it's our phones, or our computers, things are just getting increasingly large when it comes to bandwidth," Evans says.
He says it's just the beginning of growth in the technology industry across Nebraska.
"We really have an opportunity to be a destination for data centers throughout the country," Hamilton Telecommunications executive Dan Molliconi says.
He says that's because the state's public-owned power is affordable,
Midwest weather is less extreme, and fiber is easily accessible.
"I think once one comes, we're going to see others wanting to locate here," Evans says. "We've got plenty of other hundreds of acres to be able to offer to companies."
