Proposed legislative rules changes

Members of the Nebraska Legislature are considering several proposed changes to its rules and procedures. Here's what you can do.


On Monday, Jan. 8, members of the Nebraska Legislature will hear public testimony regarding several proposed changes to its rules and procedures. You can review all of the proposals at this link.

The hearing is set for 1:30 pm CST in Room 1525 of the Nebraska State Capitol in Lincoln. With winter weather in the forecast for much of our state starting this weekend and into Monday, please be aware that you can comment on any of the proposed changes online.

Today [Jan. 5] being George W. Norris Day in Nebraska, we’re reminded that the architect of our unicameral, nonpartisan Legislature believed that the systems he and his colleagues provided us would make government more open, accessible, efficient, and accountable. History has largely shown him to be correct, and as you examine this year’s proposed rules changes, please keep our state’s nonpartisan traditions in mind. They have shaped the Nebraska Legislature into an independent and collaborative body for nearly a century.

Thank you for all that you do –

Heidi Uhing
Director of Public Policy
