Nebraska Government & Politics
Nebraska is famous as the only state with a unicameral legislature, but the government of Nebraska is unique in other ways as well. This first comprehensive handbook is meant to help Nebraskans understand the government of their state; at the same time, it is addressed to political scientists with an interest in state and local government and to people in other states who are considering the adoption of Nebraska's practices. The book sets out not only to describe but also to assess the government of Nebraska in operation and to explain the anomaly of an innovative government in an apparently conservative political setting. The topics discussed include the state constitution, the governor and other elected officials, the legislature, the judiciary, the bureaucracy, the citizens' political attitudes and behavior, trends in state expenditures and revenue, local government, and intergovernmental relations.
