We've Changed!

As you can see, the website looks a little bit different. But fear not! Everything that was on the old site is still here on the new! However, some things may have been rearranged, ever so slightly. For example, a few of the changes made were:

  • Careers menu has been moved under Classfieds, along with a new For Sale link
  • About the League is now About Us
  • Calendar of Events has been moved under About Us

Take a look around. If you have any questions or notice anything out of place, please feel free to Contact Us!

Legislative News

Items of Interest to Municipalities

During the interim, or the months between regular legislative sessions, lawmakers will, among many things, consider interim study resolutions or proposals for the study of issues after the Legislature adjourns its regular session. These proposals are sent to the Legislature’s Executive Board, which refers them to the appropriate committees for consideration before next session. Committees then prioritize the resolutions referred to them. Limited time and staff usually preclude work on every resolution. Hearings on interim study resolutions typically are held in late summer or early fall and a weekly notice of those hearings is posted on the Legislature’s website at http://nebraskalegislature.gov/. A list of Interim study resolutions is available on the Legislature’s website at http://nebraskalegislature.gov/session/interim.php.
The 2015 Legislature, which will be the 104th Legislature, is scheduled to convene Jan. 7. It will be a long, or 90-day, session.
