Lincoln, NE (AP) - A bill that could have thrust lawmakers into the debate over the Central Nebraska Veterans Home move is still stuck in committee.

The Legislature's Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee postponed a vote Thursday to reconsider the measure. The panel rejected the proposal last week, but agreed to review it again.

Sen. Mike Gloor introduced the bill after Gov. Dave Heineman announced that the state would move the home from Grand Island to Kearney. Gloor, of Grand Island, says his bill addresses the divisive process of picking new government building sites.

The committee has 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.


The bill is LB935
