Download The Nebraska State Constitution: A Reference Guide (Reference Guides to the State Constitutions of the United States) epub
by Peter Longo,Robert Miewald
This is the first modern, comprehensive reference on the Nebraska State Constitution. Written in 1875, much of the basic law remains the same, and yet important innovative developments provide for a history of controversy up to the present. The guide consists of a short constitutional history, the text of the constitution, article-by-article with commentary, a selected bibliography, a table of cases, and a full general index. This easy-to-use, one-volume guide for students, scholars, and legal professionals is a valuable acquisition for law, college and university, and school libraries.
The Nebraska Constitution is one of the oldest state constitutions in America. It has been amended nearly 200 times, with important changes including a unicameral legislature. The constitutional history recounted in the first part of the volume describes fiery debates over major issues even today--such as personal property tax, clemency, cases the state can take to court, reimbursement of depositors in failed savings and loan companies, to mention just a few. The full text of the constitution and its detailed analysis with new interpretations over the years is presented for easy reference and careful study.
