Did you know? Nebraska has the smallest state legislature in the United States. Comprised of 49 Senators, in a single unicameral house. Officially, Senators are supposed to be non-partisan. The Legislative session last for 90 days in odd-numbered years and just 60 in even-numbered years.
The lawmaking process in Nebraska officially begins when a senator introduces a bill into the Legislature, which meets each January. However, the process actually begins much earlier, when a senator first begins to formulate ideas for new laws. An idea for a new law may be suggested by anyone: concerned citizens, special interest groups, state agencies or the governor. But before the Legislature can formally consider the idea, it must be introduced as a bill by a senator or legislative committee.
