Gov. Heineman Makes a Statement on Veto Overrides


(Lincoln, Neb.) Gov. Dave Heineman today offered the following statement to the LB 357 and LB 599 veto overrides:

“Today, the majority of the Nebraska Legislature decided their priorities are:

  • Providing taxpayer funded benefits to illegal immigrants and
  • Increasing the sales tax rate on the citizens of Nebraska.

“I strongly disagree with their decisions. Providing preferential treatment to illegals while increasing taxes on legal Nebraska citizens is misguided, misplaced and inappropriate.”
