ICYMI: Tax relief heading in the direction we need (Kearney Hub)
This week Gov. Pete Ricketts highlighted legislative proposals he favors in addressing Nebraska’s property tax problem, and we agree with him. One of the proposals Ricketts favors is an amendment to the Nebraska Constitution that would cap property tax increases by local governments.
The second proposal would boost the amount kept in the state’s Property Tax Credit Relief Fund to at least $275 million.
We approve of LR8CA, introduced by Elkhorn state Sen. Lou Ann Linehan, because it will help control spending increases. It is important that every unit of government restrains spending because without restraint, taxes will continue to rise.
