Neb. state senators eye working group to craft tax compromise
Sens. Brad Ashford and Beau McCoy, both of Omaha, noted that a working group was successful in reaching a compromise on another difficult issue — collective bargaining by public employee unions — and could work on taxes, too. But a key player in the tax debate, Sen. Galen Hadley of Kearney, chairman of the powerful Revenue Committee, remained noncommittal Friday about whether a tax plan needs to be debated this year or can wait until 2014.

LINCOLN — Two state senators co-sponsoring Gov. Dave Heineman's bold plan to eliminate Nebraska income taxes laid out a strategy Friday to retreat and revamp the widely criticized idea.
