The problems and policy choices in state and local government finance were the main topics discussed in the major public affairs extension program of the University of Nebraska in 1961-62. The program was entitled: "Let's Talk About Nebraska Taxes." This educational activity for the citizens of the state was planned, prepared, and presented by the extension staff in agricultural economics under the leadership of the public affairs specialist. The general purpose of the program was to meet the need and desire for objective information on this important public issue as expressed by farm and nonfarm people throughout the state.
