New Laws in Colorado and Nebraska Address Encroachment on Military Installations

In Nebraska, LB 279 requires that cities and counties considering the adoption of a zoning ordinance or the approval of a plat or replat, notify military installations located within the city or county boundaries or within the extra-territorial zoning jurisdiction where the military installation has requested to be notified.
