We have curated some of the most commonly asked questions for you.
Does Nebraska require a reason for a record request?
Nebraska does not require that you state the reason that you want to access these records. This allows you to access the records for any reason, regardless of what you're going to use them for.
Who can request public records?
Nebraska's public records law is a little broad, but the language of the law says that anyone that is a resident of Nebraska may see the records, and anyone that has interest in the inner workings of Nebraska may see it as well. The second part of that message implies that anyone can see Nebraska public records.
