LINCOLN — The Nebraska Legislature's master of delaying bills offered Monday to drop his most recent filibuster and become “an ordinary member of the Legislature.”
State Sen. Ernie Chambers, the 75-year-old dean of the Nebraska Legislature, made the offer as he filibustered another bill he doesn't like, one to create a committee to study “modernization” of state taxes.
