Event description

Description

It takes 33 votes to make major changes in the Nebraska Legislature, and that means working together with Nebraskans who won't always agree on every issue.

Join the Platte Institute for its annual preview of the upcoming legislative session, as senators and policy experts discuss what it will take to build consensus around solutions for the state's fiscal and economic challenges.

General Admission is $20 plus processing and includes a hot breakfast. Complimentary registration is available for elected officials and staff, candidates, media, and students.

Program topics include property tax reform, Nebraska's new review of job licensing, the state budgeting process, and where state and local policy meet.
