Committee on Suggested State Legislation
The committee oversees the Suggested State Legislation Program (SSL). Operating for more than 60 years, SSL highlights innovative legislation from one state that may be beneficial to other states, and particularly in response to trends. Recent issues addressed by SSL drafts include anti-terrorism, biometric technology, financial literacy and self-directed in-home care. The committee meets three times a year to review about 240 bills, and selects 30 to 40 of them to be included in annual Suggested State Legislation volumes. Membership on this committee generally consists of one legislator from each legislative body in the state (Nebraska – two) and one legislative staff person from each state.
