Candidates for Governor discussed their views on property tax raises in Nebraska at a  debate at the Nebraska State Fair.

Bob Krist, the Democratic challenger to Governor Pete Ricketts, said he would support a plan to direct more state income and sales tax toward reducing the property taxes Nebraskans paid.

Ricketts acknowledged that every year he has introduced legislation on property taxes every year and criticized Krist for being in the State Legislature for 10 years and only proposing one bill on property taxes.  

Krist said the legislation Ricketts proposed last year favored corporations and the highest income earners.
