In 1986, the Nebraska State Legislature passed LB548, which requires that public employees and officials employing, recommending the employment of, or supervising the employment of an immediate family member must disclose the fact. For the purposes of this legislation, immediate family is defined as “a child residing in the individual’s household, a spouse of the individual, or an individual claimed by the public official or employee or his or her spouse as a dependent for federal income tax purposes.”
