In an effort to get people off of the interstate and into rural Nebraska, State Legislators are approving a bill on first round that would allow special signs to be placed along the interstate for attractions. This is being done after a request from wineries in the state who say they could get a lot more business if people driving through the state knew they existed.
“I believe that agri- tourism is the secret to economic development and the savior to rural Nebraska and the farm wineries that we have created and allowed for are the key to that.”
The Bill was brought by Senator Kent Rogert of Tekamah. He says Wineries are more than willing to pay for the cost of the signs.
