Omaha, Neb. —  Nebraska voters could get to decide whether to restrict local government spending next year under Gov. Pete Ricketts’ new property tax proposal that he presented to lawmakers. Ricketts is also continuing his push to bring U.S. Space Command Operations to Offutt Air Force Base, hoping that the incoming Biden administration will overturn the Trump administration’s decision to place it in Alabama. Ricketts says he wants to build a new state prison to replace outdated facilities, expand broadband service and provide a tax exemption for military retirement pay.
