Thank you so very much for this opportunity to speak today at this 48th Annual Nebraska Agri-Business Association meeting. Dr. Kyle Hoagland, Water Center Director in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and I are particularly pleased to be asked to talk with you today about water, a key concern in our state and in our world. New water regulations affecting Nebraska's agricultural producers, numerous legislative discussions, and stories of neighbors contesting water use by neighbors have been in the news and on our minds. We all know that will continue.
