Public hearings are now scheduled for Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman's proposals to overhaul the state tax system.

The Legislature's Revenue Committee will hold hearings on Feb. 6 and 7 at the Capitol. Sen. Galen Hadley of Kearney, the committee chairman, announced the hearing dates on Friday.

Heineman, a Republican, urged lawmakers this month to eliminate Nebraska's individual and corporate income taxes. The plan would require lawmakers to end as much as $2.4 billion in sales tax exemptions.

The Feb. 6 hearing will focus on the governor's larger proposal to eliminate both income taxes. The Feb. 7 hearing will focus on a second, smaller plan that would end $395 million in sales tax exemptions.

Both hearings will take place in Room 1524 at the Capitol, starting at 1:30 p.m.
