Property taxes, state parks eyed in Nebraska budget

March 3, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Property owners could get a tax break, state parks could get new cabins, and Nebraska could see new flood- and drought-mitigation projects if a series of budget bills become law.

The Legislature's Appropriations Committee is expected to finish its work this week on changes to the state budget. The tentative package includes $25 million for a state fund that offsets property taxes, $17.5 million for deferred park maintenance and $32 million for water projects by the middle of next year.
