University of Nebraska System President Ted Carter today issued the following statement on the Governor signing LB 1014, the bill appropriating Nebraska’s share of federal American Rescue Plan dollars. The bill includes $60 million for a UNK-UNMC Rural Health Complex to be built on the Kearney campus.
"This is a big day for rural Nebraska and indeed our entire state. Governor Ricketts’ support of the UNK-UNMC Rural Health Complex will pay dividends for Nebraskans well into the future. The University of Nebraska thanks the Governor and all those who have championed this crucial investment in the workforce, vitality and growth of our rural communities."
