By Nate Gonner 5/2/2013

 

             A SOUTHEAST NEBRASKA SENATOR SAYS HE FEELS THE 5.2 PERCENT INCREASE IN SPENDING OVER THE NEXT TWO YEARS IS A BIT HIGH, BUT IS PLEASED IN FUNDING INCREASES TO A NUMBER OF ENTITIES IN THE STATE.

 

              SENATOR BILL KINTNER OF PAPILLION WAS APART OF THE ONGOING 7.8 BILLION DOLLAR TWO YEAR BUDGET DISCUSSIONS IN LINCOLN AS A MEMBER OF THE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE.

 

              KINTER SAYS HE IS PLEASED WITH THE FUNDING THE BUDGET WILL PROVIDE TO EDUCATION, SPECIAL EDUCATION, AND ALSO TO THE STATES ROADS.

 

              NOW MANY OUR WONDERING IF THE INCREASES ARE ENOUGH TO FUFILL GOVERNOR HENIEMAN’S HOPES OF FREEZING TUITION FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA AND THE STATE COLLEGE SYSTEM.

 

              KINTNER SAYS THIS BUDGET DOES JUST THAT.
