Gov. Ricketts Comments on Revised Revenue Forecast


LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts commented on action by the Nebraska Economic Forecasting Advisory Board, which raised the revenue forecast by $69 million for the current fiscal year 2018-19.


“The news from today’s forecasting board meeting underscores our state’s growing economy,” said Governor Ricketts.  “Even with projected growth in revenue, Medicaid expansion for able-bodied adults would make property tax relief nearly impossible and cut funding for education.”
