Newt’s World – Episode 367: Nebraska’s Gift to Taxpayers

Newt talks with Governor Pete Ricketts about refunding $400 million dollars to Nebraska’s taxpayers.

Earlier this month, Governor Pete Ricketts of the State of Nebraska announced that he was giving $400 million dollars in surplus back to the Nebraska taxpayers.  An extraordinary move, when many other states have used all of their federal funding to increase spending.  Nebraska won the Governor’s Cup for the most economic development projects per capita three years in a row from 2016 – 2018. And in 2021, Nebraska has the lowest unemployment rate in all 50 states.  Newt’s guest is Governor Pete Ricketts.
