Ballot Issues In State Elections


Four ballot measures are being put in Nebraska voters' hands, including whether state senators should get their first raise since 1988 and be allowed to serve an extra term.

Voters also will choose to expand the grounds for impeachment and establish a state constitutional right to hunt and fish.

The salary proposal would boost state senators' pay from $12,000 to $22,500 dollars annually.

The term limit proposal would allow senators to serve up to three consecutive four year terms. An impeachment ballot measure would allow elected officials to be thrown out of office for wrong–doings during campaigns.
