Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts has approved a new $9.3 billion, two-year state budget.
The budget calls for a $51 million annual boost to the state's property tax credit fund, for a total of $275 million a year.
That’s nearly double the amount distributed to taxpayers in 2015.
With the extra funding, the owner of a $150,000 home will get a $106 discount on their property tax bill.
State spending under the new budget will increase by an average of 2.9 percent per year, which is less than average.
