Items of Interest to Municipalities

105th Legislature adjourns sine die May 23, 2017

Lawmakers adjourned sine die May 23 on the 86th day of the 90-day session. A list of interim study resolutions appears on the Legislature's website. The League of Nebraska Municipalities will be following a number of interim studies this year. Hearings on these studies will likely begin later this summer and fall. 

 

 

The League of Nebraska Municipalities is a nonprofit organization of cities and villages that was established in the late 1800s to represent municipalities in the Legislature. The League’s functions include sponsoring educational seminars, publishing a magazine and newsletters, representing its member cities and villages on state advisory boards and answering technical questions. The top priority is representing its members in the legislative process.
