The Nebraska Legislature's Planning Committee was created in 2009 with the passage of LB 653 in order to help establish a process of long-term state planning with the Nebraska Legislature. The committee was created to assist state government in identifying emerging trends, assets and challenges of the state and the long-term implications of the decisions made by the Nebraska Legislature.
The five Policy Briefs contained in this report focus on three general areas: (1) two look at the potential impact of Nebraska’s aging population on Medicaid; (2) two address the theme of government consolidations and mergers; and (3) one deals with an aspect of early childhood education.
