Gov. Ricketts: Let’s “Git-R-Done” on Property Tax Relief


LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts commented on the Nebraska Economic Forecasting Advisory Board’s decision to raise the State of Nebraska’s revenue forecast for the current fiscal year 2019-2020 (FY2020) and next fiscal year 2020-2021 (FY2021).  Today, the board increased the projection for both years of the budget biennium by a combined total of $140 million.


“Nebraska’s economy continues to grow, and the forecasting board’s action reflects ongoing optimism for the future,” said Gov. Ricketts.  “This increased forecast eases the Legislature’s pathway to delivering over $500 million of property tax relief this session.  As one famous Nebraskan would say ‘let’s git-r-done!’”
