OMAHA, Nebraska: On May 10, 2013, the Nebraska State Legislature pulled $2.5 million from the state budget which had been designated to buy a 2001 Beechcraft Super King Air B200 turboprop airplane from a University of Nebraska foundation, and instead do a study to determine what kind of plane would serve the governor best. Last month, Governor Dave Heineman made his case for a new state airplane which would allow him to visit rural Nebraska. The Appropriations Committee labeled the plane as a purchase that does not make the most sense for the state. Nebraska currently owns an eight-seat 1977 Piper Navajo and an eight-seat 1982 Piper Cheyenne.[1][2]
