Nebraska's Lieutenant Governor is urging lawmakers to spend their extra money wisely


Lieutenant Governor Lavon Heidemann served as chair of the Appropriations Committee for six years during his time as a state senator.

He said during a stop in Norfolk Monday that lawmakers may have a tougher time crafting a budget now that economic officials have projected and additional

$125 million in tax receipts for the Unicameral to work with. Heidemann says that money needs to be spent wisely.

"They're going to have to figure out what their priorities are. Hopefully they don't get spending too high. I believe it's important to park some in cash reserve, because eventually things are going to slow down," Lavon Heidemann, Nebraska Lt. Gov., said.

Heidemann says any extra money the state does end up with should go to tax relief for Nebraskans.
