2023 Legislative Bills of Interest

February 27, 2023
Last week the Legislature continued morning debate of bills and afternoon committee hearings. There are 62 bills on general file awaiting first-round consideration and 23 bills on select file ready for second-round debate; most legislation remains in committee. A committee may hold an executive session and vote to advance or kill a bill any time after its hearing.

The Health and Human Services Committee voted to advance two controversial bills on Wednesday. After the votes, Senator Machaela Cavanaugh of Omaha pledged to “burn the session” through long debate. She began filibustering bills on Thursday morning, halting consideration. Speaker Arch has announced he will follow the previous guidelines of ruling that “full and fair debate” has occurred after 8 hours of debate on general file, 4 hours of debate on select file, and 2 hours of debate on final reading. That means one bill could potentially be subjected to 14 hours of filibuster before being passed by the Legislature.
