Because being informed is an important part of a citizen's ability to participate in the legislative process, NebraskaLegislature.gov offers several news-related services to its users.
Unicameral Update Online
Each week during the legislative session, the Unicameral Update covers legislative activity, including stories on floor action and committee hearings. Committee hearing schedules are included in each issue, as well as a weekly review of all legislative activities and educational and informational features.
Senators' Web Pages
Some senators maintain web pages where they share information about their bills, the progress of the Legislature and other news relevant to their district. Readers can subscribe to their individual RSS feeds to receive the most up-to-date news. A tool to help identify your senator can be found here.
