Changes Proposed for Nebraska Tax-Modernization Panel
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A key
lawmaker in Nebraska's tax debate has released new details about a
proposal to create a tax-modernization committee.
Sen. Beau McCoy
of Omaha unveiled a measure Thursday that would create a 12-member
working group, set public hearings throughout the state, and schedule a
"tax summit" to chart a new path for Nebraska's tax code.
proposal would include at least five public hearings throughout
Nebraska, online questionnaires, and a state tax summit. Committee
members would also review previous tax-policy studies and issue a report
to lawmakers and the governor by Dec. 15.
McCoy says he'd like to
see the tax summit coincide with the Nebraska State Fair in Grand
Island, to attract as many people as possible.
