For Dawn Black, going into ministry was a leap of faith she says she just knew she was supposed to take. Uncertain where her journey would take her, she could have never predicted leaving her life-long Kentucky home to relocate to the middle of Nebraska. But that is exactly where God has brought her.
LINCOLN -- The first session of the 103rd Legislature came to a close Wednesday after Gov. Dave Heineman addressed the body, praising senators for their work and calling for â€śa giant step forwardâ€ť in tax reform next session.
Despite issuing more than 20 line-item vetoes on the two-year budget, about half of which were overturned, Heineman thanked the Appropriations Committee for its efforts, saying he agreed with members on the most important issues, like state aid to schools and rebuilding the cash fund.
â€śMost importantly, we balanced the budget without raising taxes,â€ť he said.
