Nebraska Governor Talks About Virus Response And Revenue

Jul 30, 2020 | ,

(KVHT) – Nebraska lawmakers returned to work last week, four months after their session was interrupted due to COVID-19. The session is expected to last 13 days and in their first days back Governor Pete Ricketts asked the unicameral members to work together on four priorities – including the next project from the University of Nebraska Medical Center and his signature property tax relief and tax incentives packages. Ricketts told legislators that seeing eye-to-eye on these things will not be easy, adding there will be passioned opinion on how to accomplish the goals at hand, as well as differences on how to do it. The governor went on to say that he hopes they will be like Nebraskans who have stepped up to serve their communities in this pandemic, and work together to accomplish the people’s work. The governor’s address comes after the Nebraska Economic Forecasting Advisory Board predicted that while the state’s tax revenue will likely dip below earlier projections, the budget picture won’t be as bad as previously expected.
