Gov. Ricketts: Committee Vote to Strip Pro-Life Budget Provision is “Appalling”

 

LINCOLN –  Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement following news that the Nebraska Legislature’s Appropriations Committee had stripped key pro-life language from the state budget in a committee vote.

 

“Less than a year ago, the Legislature stood with Nebraskans and voted for a pro-life budget.  Given what’s going on in New York and Virginia, the decision to strip the pro-life language out of this year’s budget is especially appalling.  I urge the committee to reconsider this initial vote, because how the state spends taxpayer dollars has deep implications for the dignity of human life and Nebraska’s core values.”
