Disability Rights Nebraska's Public Policy Team worked hard to protect the rights of people with disabilities during the 1st Session of the 106th Legislature. This session, we provided analyses and testimony on issues that affect the disability community. We addressed “High Priority” bills with testimony, personal contacts and education, and “Medium Priority” bills with letters, often in conjunction with other disability rights partners. Additionally, we helped inform the public about the legislative process in Nebraska and upcoming legislation that may affect people with disabilities.
View our updated Legislative Bill Chart to see the statuses of our priority bills at the end of this session.
