The Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee is a standing committee of the Nebraska Unicameral Legislature. Per Legislature Rule 3, the committee is made up of eight members.[1]

Per Rule 3 of the Unicameral Rules, committees in the Nebraska Legislature are appointed biennially by a thirteen-member select Committee on Committees with approval from the Legislature at-large. The Committee, which itself is elected by the whole Legislature at the beginning of a legislative session following an election, is responsible for submitting a preliminary report of appointments, then on the following day a final report to be voted on by the Legislature. If a final report is not passed, it is returned to the Committee for alterations.[2] During the session, vacancies are filled by the Committee on Committees unless provided for otherwise. Between sessions, vacancies are filled by a vote of the Executive Board.[3] The Speaker is not allowed to serve on a standing committee, but is to serve on the Rules Committee ex officio.[4]
