I'm writing to you today to ask you to vote against the rule changes that would weaken the proud non-partisan tradition of the Legislature for the last 80 years. This included lowering the cloture vote threshold and ending secret ballot leadership elections.
The Nebraska Legislature has a proud tradition of working together because we share one important thing in common: we're all Nebraskans. We don't just work across the aisle, we share the aisle. We respect each other, even when we disagree.
Changing the Legislature's rules to end secret ballot elections and lowering the cloture vote threshold will weaken the non-partisan tradition of Nebraska. This is in direct opposition to the reason the nonpartisan unicameral legislature was created: to have senators come together regardless of ideology and work together for the common good of Nebraska.
Please vote to retain the current rules. Please vote to retain the Nebraska legislature's integrity and proud non-partisan tradition.
