May 15, 2009, Lincoln— The state’s $6.9 billion, two-year budget received the third and final vote this week in the Legislature. The budget bills, as passed by the Legislature, are remarkably similar to the proposals introduced by the Appropriations Committee. The budget anticipates a 3.2 percent reduction in the 2009-10 fiscal year, and a 5.3 percent increase in 2010-11. The average increase for the two-year cycle is only 1 percent. As I said last week, the opportunity to avoid draconian budget cuts and even provide a very small increase to fund some extremely important services is based on the availability of federal stimulus funds and the ability to tap into the state’s Cash Reserve Fund (Fund).
When the legislative session
began, the Cash Reserve Fund contained about $566 million. The proposed
budget uses about $254 million from the Fund and allows the un-obligated
balance to carry over to provide assistance, if it is needed, in the
next biennium. The Nebraska Budget Act defines the term “cash reserve”
as the funds required for the period before revenue would become available
for expenditure. Nebraska law requires that the Fund always contain
a minimum 3 percent reserve to protect the state, should an unexpected
fiscal emergency occur. In recent years the Fund balance has steadily
increased, because the Legislature has made wise policy decisions. The
decisions have produced only modest tax cuts and spending increases.
This approach has allowed monies to accumulate in the Fund, so that
now, when we are in a severe economic downturn, we can use some of the
resources we have been saving to reduce the number and size of budget
cuts, and to direct some funds to areas of great importance.
The proposed budget cannot meet every need, but it is important to highlight a few of the important areas that will receive funding thanks, in part, to the federal stimulus funds and careful stewardship of state funds by past legislatures. They include state funds to replace the anticipated loss of federal funds for the Beatrice State Developmental Center, services for some of the people who have waited a long time for developmental disability services, small rate increases for Medicaid health care providers, increases for K-12 and higher education, funding for criminal background checks for people who provide transportation for foster children, and increased support for area agencies on aging.
The governor received the budget bills on Wednesday, May 13 and has five days, excluding Sunday, to decide what
to do with them. If he signs the bills or declines to act on them, the bills will become law. However, with budget bills, the governor may also veto specific line-items. If he does invoke his veto power, the bills will be returned to the Legislature, where veto overrides may be considered. By next week state senators will know if there will be any vetoes. It will then be up to the Legislature to accept the governor’s budget changes or to stand by its own budget plan. For now, we must simply wait to see what will happen in the final chapter of the budget process.

Six Cass County Churches got together at Marvin and Ramona Ohlerking's farm to cut and plant 1/2 mile of potatoes to give to those in need in the Fall.
Clergy and congregation members from the Elmwood Christian Disciples of Christ and United Methodist churches, The Weeping Water Christian Church Disciples of Christ as well ans the United Methodist and Christian Disciples of Christ churches in Louisville took part in the planting project
As clergy, we are hoping this idea catches on and more churches and their congregations will becme involved . We are prayerful and hopeful that next year we will be able to add at least one more item to the crop.
In the Fall, we will give bags of potatoes along with simple recipes to those in need during these hard economic times.
