NPPA hosted our first annual Legislative Day earlier this month in Lincoln. Representatives from a variety of our members came to Lincoln to promote and support the industry.
Events began with a Natural Resources Committee hearing on February 17th and was followed that evening by a NPPA member dinner at the Nebraska Club with Governor Pete Ricketts' chief of staff.
On February 18th the NPPA hosted a breakfast at the Nebraska Club for Nebraska state senators, their staff and NPPA members to learn about the positive impact our industry has on Nebraska.
Following breakfast our members proceeded to the Capitol where David Bracht, head of the Nebraska Energy Office, and Governor Ricketts addressed NPPA members concerning development of the state's first energy plan and other topics related to the oil and gas industry. The Governor expressed his support for the industry.
We would like to thank all of our members that were able to join us over the two days and if you were unable to attend we hope you will be able to attend next year.
