Randy Neugebauer Takes Questions from Callers [Audio]

Neugebauer, Facebook

Monday on Lubbbock’s First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer spoke with callers about Section 179, the defense budget, and the Farm Bill.

The Congressman started off by responding to a question about the expiration of tax credit based Section 179. Section 179 states that business owners can get credit for equipment all at once, rather than collecting as it depreciates over the years. Neugebauer said he supports the Section. He said, “I think it’s the right thing to do” and would like to make tax policies permanent.

Neugebauer also responded to a question about the National Defense Authorization Bill (NDAA). He said the bill is voted on annually to decide the defense budget. While Neugebauer did not have specifics on changes made, he said he would speak more in depth on it next week. He acknowledged the public’s concern about whether human rights may be violated by the bill.

Finally, Neugebauer noted progress made toward an agreement on the Farm Bill. He said the speaker is strongly against supply management in the bill. He believes there will be a conference vote later this week, which would alleviate the stress on farmers created by the lack of a decision.
