Nebraska lawmakers have decided to fill what was an empty fund meant to help ease alcohol-related problems in and near Whiteclay.

On Wednesday, they gave second-round approval to an amendment and bill (LB1002) that would pump $100,000 into the fund.

Supporters say that money in the fund eventually could be used to help build an alcohol treatment center or increase law enforcement in Whiteclay.

When given first-round approval early this month, lawmakers acted to create the fund, but put no money in it.
