Located in the Midwestern United States, Nebraska’s largest city is Omaha and its capital is Lincoln. In addition, Nebraska is the only U.S. state with a unicameral legislature.
Although Nebraska's legislature is officially known simply as the "Legislature" and more commonly called the "Unicameral," its members call themselves "senators." Nebraska's Legislature is also the only state legislature in the United States that is nonpartisan. The senators are elected with no party affiliation next to their names on the ballot, and the speaker and committee chairs are chosen at large so that members of any party can be chosen for these positions.
