Legislative session resumes

Senators reconvened at the State Capitol July 20 to complete the second session of the 106th Nebraska Legislature.

Speaker Jim Scheer of Norfolk suspended the session in March due to public health concerns regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

Senators returned to a changed physical environment, including limitations on staff access to the legislative chamber and plexiglass barriers between members. Balconies are closed to the public.

Among the major proposals remaining on the agenda are a property tax measure, a new business tax incentive program and passage of the state budget.

Seventeen legislative days remain in the 2020 session, which is scheduled to adjourn Aug. 13.
