LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A series of new Nebraska state budget bills has won committee approval for debate in the Legislature.

The Appropriations Committee on Wednesday advanced three measures to update the state’s two-year financial plan.

Committee members this year have voted in favor of proposed changes to include additional money for Nebraska’s property tax credit program, state parks maintenance, water projects and upgrades to the State Capitol.

The budget measures still require approval in the full Legislature before they are sent to Gov. Dave Heineman. Lawmakers are scheduled to consider the measures on Monday afternoon.
