WHAT WE BELIEVE
Nonpartisan Nebraska is a new 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded on the belief in the power of representative democracy and Nebraska’s use of a one-house, nonpartisan legislature. Our mission is keep the Nebraska Legislature nonpartisan.
We believe the Legislature should be easily accessible and understood by all Nebraskans, that the historic rules and procedures of the Nebraska Unicameral provide a path for issue-by-issue collaboration amongst lawmakers, emphasize the influence a single lawmaker can have without top-down partisan representation for the People of Nebraska, and ultimately that the People, not political parties, should control our Legislature. As former U.S. Senator George W. Norris of McCook, Nebraska once said in a 1934 speech titled "The Model Legislature:" "To get good government and retain it, it is necessary that a liberty-loving, educated, intelligent people should be ever watchful to carefully guard and protect their rights and liberties."
