Nebraska Year in Review: judicial records management & judicial salaries

New laws affecting the courts enacted by the Nebraska legislature in 2012 include the following:

LB 576 Creates Nebraska Statutes Distribution Cash Fund for use by the Supreme Court to offset distribution costs.

LB 862 Sets salaries for justices of the supreme court as $145,614.74 (Although the bill only specifies salary increases for Supreme Court Judges, other judges will also receive an increase in salary as their salaries are statutorily tied to the Supreme Court judge salaries.)

LB 880 Requires judicial and other state branches/agencies reduce costs and adopt modern methods of state and local records management.
