Nebraska Legislature Reaches Compromise on Redistricting
Maps proposed in LB 1 and LB 3, with significant amendments from AM 36 (to LB 1) and AM 37 (to LB 3), were approved by the Legislature and signed by the governor. Adopted maps for Nebraska’s three Congressional districts, Legislature, state Supreme Court, state Board of Regents, state Board of Education, and Public Service Commission can be viewed from http://news.legislature.ne.gov/red/adopted-plan/
The League thanks Fair Maps Director Sheri St. Clair, the Fair Maps Action Team and LWVNE members for their activism on redistricting. We also thank the Legislature’s Redistricting Committee; its chair and vice chair, Senators Linehan and Wayne; and Speaker Hilgers for their leadership in reaching a compromise during the special session.
