Looking for Clarity

To help Huskers decode how Nebraska makes budget decisions and creates tax policy, OpenSky Policy Institute has created Looking for Clarity: An Overview of Nebraska Budget and Tax Policy. This easy-to-read primer takes the confusion out of Nebraska’s laws and tax codes and distills it into a concise, manageable summary of how Nebraska collects and spends funds.

Looking for Clarity offers an unbiased look at Nebraska’s budget. OpenSky has combined information regarding the budget process, state spending, state revenue, and tax expenditures in one place. Helpful visuals and real-world examples illustrate where taxpayer dollars go.
