LINCOLN – The president of Northeast Community College told Nebraska lawmakers Monday that a legislative bill designed to lower a property tax levy lid would be detrimental to the work of the state’s community colleges.
“Lowering property taxes and correspondingly lowering the ability to fund Nebraska community colleges, as proposed in LB 144, would be devastating to one of the state's primary economic development systems, which I believe is just the opposite effect that our great state wishes to create,” said Dr. Michael Chipps, Northeast president.

NORFOLK - Manufacturing accounted for 11.8 percent of the gross domestic product in Nebraska in 2011. It not only contributed $11.2 billion to the state’s economy, but it employed 9.8 percent of the workforce. However, according to research by the consulting firm Deloitte, 600,000 manufacturing jobs remain unfilled in the United States because employers cannot find skilled workers. The skills gap and inability to fill positions with qualified candidates witnessed at the national level has not evaded Nebraska - as reports from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicate that 2.3 percent of jobs in the Midwest, including Nebraska, remain unfilled.
These are statistics that are hard to ignore. In an effort to assist the manufacturing sector in providing qualified and productive workers, Northeast Community College has created a new option to allow students to acquire highly valued skills in an innovative, hands-on learning environment.
