I've been a little busy and behind lately, but here is one LB we have already been talking about:

LEGISLATIVE BILL 95.Introducer by Crawford, 45; McCollister, 20.
A BILL FOR AN ACT relating to the cities and villages; to amend sections 18-2102.01, 18-2109, 18-2111, 18-2113, 18-2116, and 18-2117.01, Reissue Revised Statutes of Nebraska, and sections 18-2115, 18-2119, and 18-2147, Revised Statutes Cumulative Supplement, 2016; to change provisions relating to the Community Development Law and tax-increment financing; and to repeal the original sections.

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts is backing a bill that would raise the speed limit on parts of Interstate 80 and other state highways.

The bill introduced Tuesday would allow the state Department of Transportation to increase the limits to 80 mph on sections of I-80, up from the current 75 mph.

We drove on I-80 in Wyoming a couple of months ago and the average speed was more like 90-95. Keeping up was fun for a little while, but made me kinda nervous...
Conversely, the drive south of Cheyenne towards Colorado was more like an average of 75. Must be where the troopers are. :D

Are you able to go sit in on a committee hearing and how long do these usually take? The one that I'm interested in is #3 on the agenda.

LB830 - Change license application, prohibited acts, and franchise restriction provisions under the Motor Vehicle Industry Regulation Act

Bipartisan bill to change state legislators pay. Currently Senators get $12,000 a year, new salary would be 50% of Nebraska's Median Income.

The median household income for Nebraska was $56,927 in 2016. 2017 median household income data will be released in December 2018.

Can I sign up for a 2x income boost?
