Sen. Chambers leads charge to repeal local option sales tax
LINCOLN - An effort to repeal the local option sales tax could get a big boost today when the legislature reconvenes. Senator Ernie Chambers of Omaha has succeeded in maneuvering his bill to the legislative floor...and on the verge of being attached to another tax bill. Senator Jim Scheer of Norfolk says the debate should be delayed until after a special committee conducts its thorough review of the state tax system. Still, it appears Chambers has the votes he needs to pass his amendment to another tax bill.
