The League of Nebraska Municipalities is a nonprofit service association formed in 1909 to serve as a voice for Nebraska Municipalities at the Nebraska Legislature

Governed by a 15 member Executive Board comprised of municipal officials, the League now has more than 385 member cities and villages. It represents cities whose population totals 98% of Nebraskans who live in municipalities.

Mission Statement

Legislative Activities

The primary role of the League since its inception in the early 1900's has been representing the interests of city and village governments in the Legislature. The mission of the League of Nebraska Municipalities is to represent the interests of member cities and villages to preserve local control and empower municipal officials to shape the destiny of their municipality and improve the quality of life for their citizens. As part of that mission, every year the League Executive Board establishes a legislative package after reviewing the recommendations of the Smaller and Larger Cities Legislative Committees.

The League of Nebraska Municipalities also provides a number of other membership services and performs a variety of important functions.

Elected and appointed officials from all first class cities serve on the Larger Cities Legislative Committee, while representatives from second class cities serve on the Smaller Cities Legislative Committee. Both Committees play a vital role in the formation, review, and analysis of the League's legislative program.

Members of both Committees attend three meetings as well as numerous subcommittee meetings during the late summer and fall to consider requests for legislative action proposed by municipal officials from across the State.

Passage of bills introduced by Senators on behalf of the League requires the continued hard work of informed municipal officials from across the State. The weekly League Legislative Bulletin contains information about the League bills as well as other bills affecting municipalities.

Although a great deal of time is spent advocating passage of league bills, most of our legislative efforts target those measures that limit local control and are detrimental to the interests of cities and villages

The League's success is directly related to the dedication of State Senators and their staffs, as well as our high level membership involvement.

Items of Interest to Municipalities

During the 2015 Midwinter Conference, Joe Hampton was honored for his many years of service to the city of Lincoln, the state of Nebraska and the League of Nebraska Municipalities. In honor of his decades of dedication and servant leadership, the League Executive Board voted unanimously that the League Conference Room would be named the "Joe Hampton Conference Room," with a plaque placed on the double doors into the conference room. As another expression of the League's appreciation, Joe Hampton was presented with the first "Joe Hampton League Legacy Award for Outstanding Servant Leadership."
