Champion Mill bill is now in committee

A legislative bill that would transfer ownership of Champion Mill State Park and State Recreation Area from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (NGPC) to Chase County is in the Nebraska Legislature’s Natural Resources Committee, awaiting arrival on the floor of the legislature.

State Sen. Mark Christensen of Imperial introduced LB 739 after the NGPC approved the transfer at a meeting Jan. 20.

The Chase County Commissioners had previously approved the request at a Nov. 22 meeting.

The transfer issue surfaced when NGPC sought to transfer ownership to a local entity last summer as a cost-cutting measure.

Commissioner Jodi Thompson said the county can still step away from the project. After legislative approval, she said, “At that point we’ll sit down with Game and Parks and work out” details of the transfer, including any necessary repairs prior to acceptance of the mill and park on July 1.
