State info

Nebraska is located in the Midwestern region of the United States. It's largest city is Omaha and its capital is Lincoln.

Nebraska's Legislature is also the only state legislature in the United States that is nonpartisan and features only one branch. Nebraska's legislature is referred to as the "Legislature" and the "Unicameral." However, its members call themselves "senators." 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. Members of any party can be chosen for these positions.
