Nebraska property taxpayers are dealing with the consequences of two big problems — too many political deals and too much governmental spending, Gov. Jim Pillen told about 50 western Nebraska residents Thursday during a 90-minute town hall in North Platte.

To solve the problem of record-high property taxes, Pillen said one must first understand when the problem began. It took Nebraska 118 years to reach the milestone of collecting $1 billion in property tax revenue each year. During the past 37 years, however, property tax revenues have grown steeply, soaring from $1 billion to $5.3 billion.
