This afternoon State Senators looked at if the $273 Million used to provide companies with tax incentives in Nebraska is paying off.

Researchers say the incentives have led to more companies starting to build in cities like Lincoln and Omaha but the concern for State Senators is the progress within towns in Central and Western Nebraska.

"The local economic development agencies and chambers have to work with the projects that are coming in and provide them the opportunity. Here are our local contractors, our local folks who can do the job well.," said Researcher Mark Roman.

State Senators were also concerned about outsourcing jobs in Nebraska, as some companies reach outside the state to hire their base of workers.
