Legislative bill (LB) 389 was introduced by Senator Rita Sanders of Bellevue at the Governor’s request. The bill makes it quicker and easier for military spouses licensed in another state to obtain a teaching permit after moving to Nebraska.
LB 297, an initiative of the Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance, was introduced by Senator Brett Lindstrom of Omaha.
