Bill Extending Bonding Authority Advances – One Final Step To Go

Legislative Bill 177 today passed Final Reading with no debate on a vote of 35-8 by the Nebraska Legislature.  The bill extends the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District’s bonding authority for five years for flood control projects.

The bill will ensure the Papio NRD can complete the Missouri River Levee project that protects Offutt Air Force Base and Omaha’s Wastewater Treatment Plant after this year’s destructive and historic floods, as well as, build six priority reservoirs to provide needed flood mitigation in the Greater Omaha Metro Area.

The bill now goes to the Governor for his signature.
