LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska will use state sales tax money to help pay for roads projects under a major long-term proposal that Gov. Dave Heineman signed into law Tuesday.
The bill sponsored by Valentine Sen. Deb Fischer would dedicate one-quarter of a cent out of Nebraska's 5.5-cent sales tax to city, county and state roads projects. The proposal, LB 84, is one the most-debated bills lawmakers have addressed this session.
