Neb. gubernatorial candidate discusses plan to lower income taxes


NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV/US92) - He was a lawyer in the Reagan administration and now he's running for governor of Nebraska.

And Bryan Slone of Omaha says he thinks the state's taxes can be lowered.

Slone says he would set a goal to lower Nebraska's top income tax rate from 6-point-8 percent to 4-percent.

Slone says President Reagan's flat tax philosophy can be sustainable in Nebraska.

Bryan Slone, Neb. Governor Candidate: "You bring in more revenues by broadening the tax base, even at a lower rate. But what's most important is you also have to control spending. We have to control the rate of spending and make state, county and local governments a lot more efficient than they are now."

Slone is one of six candidates seeking the Republican nomination for governor.
