Over 30% of Nebraska state revenue comes from federal taxes
The Pew Charitable Trusts just released new analysis that shows around 1/3 of every state’s revenue came from the federal government in 2017. Nebraska was at 30.9%. The majority of this funding helps to pay for public services such as health care, education, transportation, and infrastructure. This is important for our lawmakers to be aware of because if the federal government decides to cut their funding to the states, it is the Nebraska taxpayers that must pick up the bill.
