January 21, 2015 was the last day of bill introduction. The NSLHA Legislative Affairs Committee members will be meeting with NSLHA's lobbyist to review the list of bills and identify priority issues that impact you and your clients.
All introduced bills will have a public hearing. For reference, the legislative floor action and committee hearings can be viewed online through live streaming. You can also watch live legislative floor action on your local public NET television channel (for Lincoln, this is channel17). As always, bills and amendments will also be posted on the Legislature's website, under the Search Current Bills application .
