LINCOLN — Gov. Dave Heineman wants to upgrade the state plane by purchasing a $2.2 million model for sale by the University of Nebraska Foundation.
The governor's proposed budget includes a request to buy a 12-year-old Beechcraft Super King Air B200 turboprop. The governor and state agencies currently lease the plane when it's not in use by the foundation.
