Nebraska State Patrol Gets Funds To Fight Meth

 The Nebraska state patrol is receiving 750-thousand dollars in federal funding. 500-thousand dollars will be used to help fight methamphetamine abuse and production. The other 250-thousand will be used to set up a computer-aided dispatch system, which will allow the state patrol to share information with other law enforcement agencies. The federal funding was approved as part of the spending bill that congress passed over the weekend.
