Private School Tax Credit Proposal Stalls In Nebraska Legislature


State Capitol Lincoln

A proposal to indirectly subsidize private K-12 schools in Nebraska by offering tax credits to scholarship donors has stalled after opponents blocked the measure with a filibuster. 

 

Backers in the Legislature fell four votes short of the 33 they needed to force a vote on the bill, which effectively sidelines it for the rest of this year’s session.
