Heineman pushes through tax reductions|
Governor Heineman pushed through a 97-Million dollar reduction in taxes over three years during the last legislative session. He wanted a 326-Million dollar tax cut, but lawmakers balked at eliminating the inheritance tax under pressure from county officials, and scaled down the package over worries it would cut too deeply into state revenue. Heineman says tax relief remains a priority. Heineman called last year's tax cut a "down payment" on tax relief for the future.
