KEARNEY, Neb. — A citizen proposal sent to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to renovate the current Grand Island Veterans Home rather than relocate to Kearney could create a problem, Gov. Dave Heineman said Monday at a Buffalo County Republican Party meeting.
“If the proposal creates confusion at the federal level, it could jeopardize federal funding,” Heineman said to the group of more than 40 at the University of Nebraska at Kearney Alumni House.
