Attorney General Jon Bruning today presented $100,000 to We Support Agriculture, a coalition that supports Nebraska agriculture producers through coordinated communication, education and advocacy. The donated funds are provided through a Supplemental Environmental Project fund.
“In Nebraska, agriculture is more than a resource – it’s a way of life,” said Bruning. “I’m proud to support efforts to protect the cornerstone of our state economy from the actions of extremist groups like the Humane Society of the United States.”
We Support Agriculture focuses on educating Nebraskans on caring for livestock animals and their connection to Nebraska’s food security, economy and social well-being. Their mission is to provide an understanding that Nebraska agricultural producers are thoughtful individuals who know how to care for their animals.
As the State’s legal representative, the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) vigorously defends and enforces the laws protecting Nebraska’s natural resources. When the AGO settles an enforcement case, companies are required to clean up the mess, pay appropriate fines and may agree to fund a court-approved Supplemental Environmental Project.
