Budget debate goes into second day

May 10, 2013

LINCOLN --  Nebraska senators voted 36-0 yesterday (Thursday) to advance the state’s main budget bill after a two-day debate over several amendments related to property tax relief, railroad inspectors and funding for the University of Nebraska.
The Legislature has spent more time debating the budget on the floor than in previous years.

An amendment introduced by Sen. Ken Schilz of Ogallala would have added an additional $15 million to the $230 million allocated over the next biennium for the Property Tax Credit Program.
