LINCOLN — Amid a growing chorus to kill Gov. Dave Heineman's tax cut bills, an Omaha senator has floated yet another plan to keep the debate alive.
State Sen. Brad Ashford on Friday pitched a $400 million tax-shift proposal that he said would cut personal income tax collections in half and provide a break for 90 percent of Nebraska families. The biggest savings would be for those earning less than $58,000 in taxable income, he said.
