Gov. Dave Heineman has chosen to enroll Nebraska in a federally run health exchange program, saying a state-based option is too expensive and inflexible. The Republican governor announced Thursday that he had rejected the state-based exchange as an option, even though it was touted by some lawmakers and health care advocates as the best option. The exchanges serve as a marketplace where individuals and small businesses can comparison shop for insurance. They're a key part of President Barack Obama's health care law, which Heineman opposes. Heineman says he was initially leaning toward a state-run exchange, but a budget review showed that a federal exchange was cheaper for state taxpayers in Nebraska. Heineman says the state-run option was also full of federal mandates, and Nebraska would have little control.
An index of economic conditions in 10 Midwest and Western states has jumped for a third straight month, but the looming "fiscal cliff" and other factors have shaken confidence in the region's economy for the coming months. The overall Rural Mainstreet index released Thursday rose to 57.5 in November from October's 56.6. Any score above 50 on the 100-point scale suggests a growing economy.
If you were sitting at one of Norfolk's railroad crossings for a long time late yesterday morning, it was because of a special ceremony officially opening a new railroad bridge just south of the Knights of Columbus hall. Richard Bertel, chairman and CEO of Nebraska Central Railroad, says his company made a $2-million investment in the bridge because of an expected increase in traffic. Construction on the project began on September 11th, and was completed one month later on October 11th. Nebraska Central provides rail service for many Norfolk businesses, including Nucor, Norfolk Iron and Metal and the Louis Dreyfus ethanol plant.
A northeast Nebraska county commissioner has won a court order blocking his recall election because of flaws in the petition. A Wayne County judge ordered election officials to abandon the Nov. 20 recall for Kelvin Wurdeman. The judge agreed with Wurdeman that petition paperwork used to gather signatures was flawed because it failed to state whether paid circulators were used. The recall petition accused Wurdeman of removing dirt from a landowner's field without permission and using it to address a nearby road problem.
Fremont police say toxicology results show a teenager who went missing and was later found dead in some woods died of an insulin overdose. Sixteen-year-old Brandon Kamphaus was last seen getting ready for school on Sept. 28, but he never showed up. His vehicle was found six blocks from his home. Search crews found his body two days later. Police Chief Jeff Elliott says Thursday that toxicology results show Kamphaus, who was diabetic, died from "toxic effects of exogenous insulin," or an insulin overdose. Foul play is not suspected.
A democratic government is one that will let you make all the money that you want. They just won’t let you keep it.
