Heineman Says Most Storm Damage is Private
NORFOLK - Late last week, Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman toured areas of eastern Nebraska battered by a storm that packed winds of nearly 100 miles per hour, large hail and heavy rain. While in Norfolk, Heineman said most of the damage is to homes, businesses and vehicles – and is covered by private insurance. As Heineman prepares to end his 10-years as Nebraska’s chief executive, members of his cabinet are looking for new jobs. Heineman says he has told his long-time directors that they need to take advantage of offers that come up. The most recent resignation from Heineman’s cabinet is Catherine Lang, director of economic development and commissioner of labor. Her last day with the state will be June 27th.
