Nebraska legislative session convenes

Senators returned to the State Capitol Jan. 8 to convene the second session of the 106th Nebraska Legislature.

Major proposals to reduce property taxes and create a new business tax incentive program are expected to dominate the session.

Lawmakers also likely will consider a bill that would allow individuals to exclude half of their military retirement benefit pay from state income tax and another that would authorize teachers and administrators to physically restrain violent students.

Other issues from last year’s agenda that senators may consider are prison reform, medical cannabis and workforce development.
