During the legislative session that begins Jan. 7, AARP Nebraska will focus on caregiving, long-term care and tax relief.
AARP is pressing for a tax credit for Nebraskans who serve as a caregiver for someone in their home and who meet certain financial criteria. The state office also is seeking legislation to beef up the state’s aging and disability resource centers, which provide one-stop shopping for long-term care services.
AARP Nebraska is recruiting volunteers to help with advocacy and boost its presence statewide. Volunteers meet regularly during the legislative session, testify at hearings and participate in lobby days.
