Panel Advances Maintenance Fund for Nebraska Game and Parks
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) —
Nebraska Game and Parks officials could resume work on a backlog of
maintenance projects under a bill advanced by a legislative panel.
Legislature's Revenue Committee advanced a bill Friday that would
create a state maintenance fund, paid for with incoming sales-tax
revenue from motor boats, ATVs and utility vehicles.
the bill would divert that money into the Game and Parks maintenance
fund over five years, starting in October. It's part of a
compromise to give the state Game and Parks Commission time to pay for
repair and renovations, without disrupting the flow of sales-tax revenue
into the state's general fund.
The bill is now headed to the full the Legislature for a vote.
