The threat of severe winter weather has prompted the legislature to cancel legislative hearings this afternoon.
Speaker of the Legislature, Mike Flood, announced that hearings scheduled to begin this afternoon at 1:30 will be cancelled so legislators can return home ahead of the storm and the public won’t be caught in it traveling to and from the Capitol in Lincoln.
The hearings scheduled for this afternoon have been rescheduled for Monday, February 13th, beginning at 9:30am.
“Bill hearings are an integral part of the legislative process, and it is important for both senators and citizens to be able to attend public hearings,” Speaker Flood said in a written statement. “This change in schedule will help keep folks off the roads during potentially unsafe conditions.”
