STATE LEGISLATOR NEWS

PAUL LAMBERT

 

April 20, 2012, Lincoln— The Latin term “sine die” means “without day.” A legislative body adjourns sine die when it concludes its business without designating a specific date and time to convene again. The Nebraska Legislature took this action on April 18 to end the 2012 session.

 As I reported last month, child welfare reform was among the most important legislative priorities this year. The extensive background work was finished and plans for change were outlined before I became a state senator. My appointment to the Legislature's Health and Human Services Committee placed me in a core group of policy makers, who received public input during the session about which changes were needed and how they should be made. By the session's end, the comprehensive reform measures that were enacted offer great promise for producing measurable improvements in the lives of foster children, foster parents, case managers, the court system and the Nebraska taxpayers whose hard-earned dollars can now be used more effectively.

 The current two-year state budget was actually created last year. This year adjustments were made for the second year which begins on July 1, 2012. The state budget, like our own household budgets, must be modified to respond to inevitable changes that happen during a two-year time period. The state budget must be balanced every year, and a minimum cash reserve, or savings account, must be maintained. Balancing the budget means making necessary cuts, and identifying ways to accommodate revenue reductions or required cost increases. The legislature, under the leadership of the Appropriations Committee and its Chairman Senator Lavon Heidemann, once again met the challenge of balancing the budget and maintaining the cash reserve.

 Based on its subject matter, the tax cut package proposed this year in LB 970 was referenced to the Revenue Committee. However, throughout the session the bill was amended and debated with the Appropriations Committee’s budget planning process in mind. As introduced LB 970 was estimated to reduce state revenue by $326.6 million for fiscal year 2012-13 and for both years of the 2013-15 biennium. With a projected revenue shortfall of $461 million at the end of the next biennium, the Revenue Committee was concerned about the state's ability to implement the entire package in the coming years. Before advancing the bill for debate, the Committee eliminated parts of the proposal to reduce the fiscal impact over the three-year period from $326.6 to $148.2 million. Despite the Committee's initial changes, the legislature's concerns about LB 970 continued. Under a compromise amendment, the changes proposed by LB 970 were reduced again – this time from $148.2 to $97.2 million. As amended the bill would expand the four income tax brackets, and lower income tax rates for lower and middle income taxpayers without jeopardizing priorities, such as education and child welfare, in future budget years.

 LB 1161 would build on oil pipeline legislation passed during the special session last fall. Although the previous pipeline permit was denied by the federal government, the bill would allow Nebraska to work expeditiously to determine the safety of a new route outside the protected Sandhills region of our state. Key provisions of LB 1161 would: (1) require a pipeline carrier to apply to the governor for approval to construct a major oil pipeline in Nebraska, (2) require the governor to approve the application or refer it to the Public Service Commission (PSC) for further review, (3) unless prohibited by federal law, require the PSC to make public all pipeline documents and records, (4) require the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to hold at least one public hearing on an application under review, and (5) require a pipeline carrier to reimburse DEQ for pipeline route evaluation expenses. LB 1161 was passed by the legislature and signed into law by the governor just two days before pipeline carrier TransCanada offered new routing options for state review. The governor and DEQ will now consider TransCanada's proposal. This time Nebraska citizens should be able to access public documents and participate in a public hearing about oil pipeline construction in our state.

 I am always interested in hearing your comments by mail, phone or email.
