LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts says it’s “imperative” that he and lawmakers come up with a way to lower property taxes that can win approval in the upcoming legislative session.

Ricketts expressed confidence Wednesday that lawmakers will find a way, despite an ongoing struggle in the tax-focused Revenue Committee to unite around a proposal.

Ricketts say he’s been talking with committee members and is still willing to talk about their ideas.

The governor made his comments in a conference call from Germany, where he is leading a trade delegation to create more economic development opportunities for Nebraska.
