Nebraska Public Media currently broadcasts and live-streams video coverage of legislative public committee hearings and floor debate.

LB254, sponsored by Gordon Sen. Tom Brewer, requires the Executive Board to develop and maintain a publicly accessible, digital internet archive of that coverage beginning with the 2025 legislative session or as soon as live, closed-captioned video coverage of the Legislature is available.

Video will be closed-captioned in English and Spanish and indexed by bill number or date.

LB254 passed on 48-0 vote and takes effect immediately.
