State Budgets: Nebraska Budget in Balance with Large Rainy Day Fund
December 28, 2008
Gov. Dave Heineman (R) announces his 2010 budget on January 15, but so far state revenues for the 2009 budget have been as expected, if flat. Nebraska also has a rainy day fund of $574 million (out of a $7.6 billion biennial budget), which officials prefer to tap before considering tax increases. Heineman has also pushed for additional federal infrastructure and Medicaid aid.
