More duties, big pay raise for Nebraska tourism chief

LINCOLN — The creation of a new state agency to promote tourism came with a nearly 27 percent pay increase for the director.
But backers say that Kathy McKillip, hired last month as director of the Nebraska Tourism Commission, deserves an $80,000-a-year salary, even though she supervises the same number of employees as when she headed the old Tourism Division of the Nebraska Department of Economic Development. Her salary in that job was $63,180.
