Nebraska Legislature Adjourns - Update on Bills of Interest to Members
The Nebraska Legislature wrapped up its session on April 20th. This was a busy biennium session, with 216 bills passed and another 66 by attaching amendments to those bills. A good example is LB562 - a bill for identifying and supporting large-scale tourism projects. LB562 did no pass, but an amendment to another bill that passed provides instructions for the Nebraska Tourism Commission to identify these types of projects before the start of the next session in 2017.
A synopsis of several bills we monitored and their status is included on our website at the following link: Monitored Bills Update
We will also continue to sort through the passed bills to find issues that impact the arts.
