Winnebago Tribe lauded for tax pact
Facebook Twitter Email

Representatives from tribes in Michigan, South Dakota and North Dakota came to Nebraska on Tuesday to learn more about the Winnebago Tribe's tax compact with the state.

The agreement calls for the tribe to share 25 percent of revenues from its fuel tax with the state. The tribe has been collecting a 3-cent tax since December 2000, after which concrete negotiations for the compact began to take shape.

The talks, the compact and the tribe's fuel business were fodder for the other representatives, who plan to take back what they learned to their communities.
