LINCOLN — A state senator wants Nebraska to adopt a “Buffett Rule” and raise income taxes on the wealthy.
The proposal, introduced Wednesday by State Sen. Danielle Conrad of Lincoln, is a political counterpunch to the goals of Gov. Dave Heineman, who wants to move the state in the opposite direction. The governor has proposed eliminating all state income taxes.
