Governor signs pipeline bills into law

November 25, 2011

LINCOLN—It took less than 45 minutes for the 15th day of the Unicameral’s special legislative session to pass four bills and then Gov. Dave Heineman to sign them into law.

Following unopposed votes on the floor, members of the Natural Resources Committee—in a highly unusual move—hand delivered the bills to the governor who quickly signed them during a five-minute ceremony in his second-floor office.

“Our work is done,” Heineman said before signing the bills while flanked by the eight- member committee.
