Governor Pete Ricketts this afternoon is calling for another one-half percent cut to state agencies and returning the reserve to three percent.


Saying the legislature’s budget proposal was based on gimmicks and a gas tax increase, the governor said he has taken a thoughtful and measured approach to the budget.


Three exceptions to the 1/2 percent cut include agencies that have already been cut three percent or more; items already exempted in LB 22, such as corrections;  or it the cut would come to a thousand dollars or less.
