LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska Game and Parks officials could resume work on a backlog of maintenance projects under a bill advanced by a legislative panel.

The Legislature’s Revenue Committee advanced a bill Friday that would create a state maintenance fund, paid for with incoming sales-tax revenue from motor boats, ATVs and utility vehicles.

If approved, the bill would divert that money into the Game and Parks maintenance fund over five years, starting in October. The sunset was part of a compromise to give the state Game and Parks Commission time to pay for repair and renovations, without permanently disrupting the flow of sales-tax revenue into the state’s general fund.

The bill is now headed to the full the Legislature for a vote.

The bill is LB814
