In what was a tough year for the budget, Governor Dave Heineman highlighted the cooperative effort from the legislature when it came to passing a balanced budget without raising taxes. He also highlighted the new investments in education and new career development opportunities in the state. The Governor says one of the most important achievements was the passage of Talent & Innovation Initiative, a four-part proposal including bills to increase internship opportunities for college-age students, promote new research and development opportunities, create new commercial and industrial sites ready for business development. He also says it encourages private investment in high-tech and start-up businesses in Nebraska with the creation of an Angel Investment Tax Credit.
