Introduced by Norfolk Sen. Jim Scheer, LB376 requires the state Department of Administrative Services to seek authorization from the governor and the Legislature to donate the land, which will be used to develop a technology park.

If the community college sells the property within 10 years after the donation, all proceeds will be remitted to the state’s General Fund.

The bill passed on a 43-0 vote and takes effect immediately.
