Sen. Rick Kolowski of Omaha introduced the bill on Wednesday. The bill would create the Great Plains Black History Endowment Fund, which would receive $8 million on July 1. The Nebraska State Historical Society will offer up to $8 million for the project, contingent on private fundraising.

Organizers say the bill would mark the first step in creating a new, $25 million, 36,000-square-foot building. The grants would be available for two years.
