Gov. Ricketts Condemns Gas Tax Hike Advancement

Lincoln – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts reacted to the Legislature’s decision to advance LB610, a proposal that would increase Nebraska’s gas tax, to Final Reading.

“Nebraskans express to me every day that their family budgets are in need of tax relief this year. The Legislature was wrong to advance this big government solution that throws tax dollars at an issue before exhausting other options first. Once again, the Legislature has chosen to prioritize tax hikes over tax relief measures that Nebraskan need and deserve. If this tax increase comes to my desk, I intend to veto it.”
