Lincoln, Neb. Nebraska lawmakers are nearly three-fourths of the way through this year's 60-day session, with many of the most high-profile issues still awaiting a vote.
Lawmakers will begin debate Tuesday on the Wellness in Nebraska Act, a revamped version of a Medicaid expansion bill that died in the Legislature last year.
Of the 105 bills designated as priorities this year, lawmakers have advanced 52 beyond a first-round vote. Forty have reached the floor of the Legislature, but haven't received a vote, and 13 are stuck in committee.
Speaker of the Legislature Greg Adams says his goal is to have debate on every priority bill that has moved out of committee. Still ahead this year are proposals to increase the minimum wage and address prison overcrowding.
