LINCOLN - State Treasurer John Murante says he looks forward to working with legislators to pass legislation he believes will allow the office to serve Nebraska better.

Murante says it helps that he steps into the office after serving in the Unicameral as a state senator from Gretna.

“There is a lot in our state laws to make our treasurers office works as efficiently as possible, and when it works efficiently the treasurers office in conjunctions with the auditors office can identify millions of dollars in waste, fraud, and abuse. We can provide greater access to college savings, distribute unclaimed property back to the people of Nebraska and make sure every dollar is accounted for better.”

Murante says he worked extensively with Treasurer Don Stenberg to make a smooth transition into the office.
