LINCOLN — Gov. Dave Heineman blasted state lawmakers Friday for “playing politics” with his proposal to buy a new state plane.
The governor, in an interview, said he made the “tough decision” a year ago to recommend the purchase of a used plane, but the Legislature chose to “waste” money on a study. Now, he said, lawmakers are unwilling to take action to buy the plane recommended by that study.
