GLENVIL, Neb. (KSNB) - State Senator Dave Murman of Glenvil is running for a second term in the legislature.

Murman now represents District 38 which includes each county on the Nebraska-Kansas border between Superior and McCook, plus Clay and Phelps counties.

Murman’s opponent this year is Tyler Cappel of Arapahoe.

In an interview with Local4 Friday, Murman said his focus in the legislature is property tax relief. His priority bill is LB 723, which he said would protect the fund the state now uses for income tax credits based on the amount of school property tax paid.

This year Murman said, property taxpayers can get an income tax credit equal to 25% of that portion of a land-owners property tax which goes to the local school district.

“Citizens can make better decision on how to spend money than government can,” Murman said, explaining why he thought property tax relief was important.

The property tax credit fund now stands at more than $500 million. Murman’s priority bill would continue to fund that credit at that level plus a 5% increase per year. it would also prevent money from that fund going to expenditures for anything other than property tax relief.
