Lawmakers are continuing to debate a measure that would create a state tax modernization commission.

The Legislature failed to reach a vote on Monday on the bill, which would launch a comprehensive study of Nebraska's tax climate.

Sen. Paul Schumacher of Columbus introduced the legislation to address a tax system that many view as outdated.

The panel would include all members of the Legislature's Revenue Committee, and other committee heads. Members would meet until December 2015. The committee would the dissolve, unless lawmakers reauthorize it.

Sen. Ernie Chambers has mounted a filibuster on the bill. Chambers argued Monday that legislation isn't needed for lawmakers to study the state tax system.
