No Action On Property Tax Package

May 8, 2019

(Lincoln, NE)  --  No action is being taken on Nebraska's proposed property tax bill.  The state senate debated the measure yesterday, but moved on to other issues without taking a vote on the proposal.  The measure calls for raising sales taxes, generating an extra 500-million-dollars for public schools, doing away with nearly 20 sales tax exemptions and lowering property taxes.  Supporters of the bill are considering options including new amendments in an effort to bring the bill back for additional debate.
