Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about current legislative bills, reach out to their state senators and watch live legislative debate.

Presentations will be given by Gov. Jim Pillen, Attorney General Mike Hilgers, Sens. Carolyn Bosn of Lincoln and Lou Ann Linehan of Elkhorn and NCC staff.

Those attending have been urged to wear red for the day.

Tickets are $15 and include breakfast, lunch and refreshments. Register by Wednesday, Feb. 28, at Catholics at the Capitol.
