LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Legislature has crossed the halfway point of its 90-day session.
Lawmakers finished their 45th day on Tuesday. The session is currently scheduled to adjourn on June 5.
Lawmakers are finishing the last of their bill hearings and transitioning to full-day legislative debate.
The Legislature and Gov. Dave Heineman still have to approve a new, two-year state budget. Lawmakers are also considering changes to state tax law, social services and a possible expansion of Medicaid under the federal health care law.
