LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Four new Nebraska laws will go into effect on Tuesday.

One law will require Nebraska school districts to publish superintendent employment contracts. Another will increase the state fees for certified copies of marriage certificates and for searches of death certificates.

A third law will officially create a state commission to prepare for Nebraska's 150th anniversary as a state in 2017. The Nebraska Sesquicentennial Commission will consist of 17 members appointed by the governor. Jeff Searcy, chairman of the Nebraska 150 Sesquicentennial Committee, says the new state commission will work to ensure statewide participation in the celebration.

The fourth establishes a program in the Department of Health and Human Services to help pay for treatment of certain allergies, a blood cell disorder and other ailments.
