Nebraska Deem & Pass? LB 1110 Proved Shenanigans Not Limited to D.C.

Posted by Shellinda As a couple of Americans who have spent too much time focused on Washington, D.C. and not enough within our state (but making an effort to change this), we wonder whether the maneuvers regarding a certain piece of legislation introduced last session is common practice in the Nebraska Unicameral.

Help Give Senator Bill Avery Early Retirement

Nebraska’s primary election is May 11.
If we wish government policy and debate to be based on Constitutional principles, we need to focus some of our time and resources on affecting who is getting elected.
