No Action Taken On Bill Regarding Grand Island Vets Home In the Unicameral

Mike Gloor Headshot


A bill that would have put to the hands of the Grand Island veterans home in the hands of the remains in committee and could either be voted to be sent to the floor for debate or killed in committee.


Officials in the Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee once again discussed LB-935 Thursday in executive session.


Grand Island State Senator Mike Gloor tells KRGI News that while the committee is contemplating the important aspect will not be included in the future.


Gloor says, "What they took out and ammended out of the bill was the look back provision. Of course, that's very important to those of us in Grand Island. But, it's no longer in the bill. They took it out. So, now the issue is getting them to at least advance the bill that accomplishes the scenerio of having this not happening again in the future."


Gloor also says the committee approved revisions to ensure the bill only applies to future projects, but some members want assurances that no one will try to change it back.


Another vote is scheduled for Tuesday.
