(Neb)-Happy Birthday Nebraska!

By: John Axtell Posted at: 03/01/2018 12:04 AM
LINCOLN -  Today is Statehood Day in Nebraska, the 151st anniversary of President Andrew Johnson signing the presidential proclamation declaring Nebraska as a state. Governor Pete Ricketts has issued a statement celebrating the occasion.

     “The Good Life turns 151 years old today, giving us an opportunity to reflect on our continued growth as a state. In 2017, we continued to produce record levels of employment with over 1 million non-farm jobs and the lowest unemployment rate in our state since 1999 at 2.7%.  And our population hit 1.92 million people for the first time ever.

     Today, let’s take time to give thanks for the hard work and investment of the generations that have come before us, as we build on their work.  We will continue to experience great success as we work together to grow our state in the years to come.”
