News Minute: Here is the latest Nebraska news from The Associated Press
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning remains in a Lincoln hospital after surgery to remove part of his colon and surrounding lymph nodes. Bruning revealed this week that he'd been diagnosed with colon cancer. His office says doctors won't know whether the disease had spread until test results come back next week.
WAYNE, Neb. (AP) - A mattress pad company won't rebuild its tornado-damaged plant in Wayne and will move production to North Carolina. That will mean the loss of 150 jobs at the Pacific Coast Feather Company facility. The plant was damaged by a twister in October.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Legislature's Tax Modernization Committee says Nebraska's tax system doesn't need major changes. The committee report released Friday says the system is comparable to other states. Ten lawmakers signed the report and four did not.
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The motel and campground next to Pioneer Village in Minden will continue to be exempt from property taxes. The Nebraska Supreme Court has reversed a decision by a state tax commission, which had ruled the motel and campground should pay taxes because they are not used solely for educational purposes like the museum.
