LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska lawmakers have chosen a new chairman to the committee that reviews bills related to public employee retirement benefits.
Senators on Wednesday elected state Sen. Mark Kolterman of Seward. Kolterman replaces state Sen. Jeremy Nordquist of Omaha, who led the committee until he resigned last year to take a new job in Washington.
The Nebraska Retirement Systems Committee focuses on legislation that affects the retirement benefits of state, county and school district employees and Nebraska judges.
State Sen. Al Davis of Hyannis had also sought the chairmanship.
