Straight Talk From Steve:
Jason Jackson’s Mess
July 13, 2022
As a Nebraska State Senator, I serve on the Legislature’s Appropriations Committee.
The Appropriations Committee is responsible for deciding how the State spends its money…well, to a certain extent, anyway. The Appropriations Committee prepares the State Budget, but state agencies are supposed to keep track of how they spend the State’s money.
The job of appropriating the State’s money is never an easy task, but in recent years it has become a nearly impossible task due to the way the executive branch of our state government has grossly mismanaged its accounting practices.
