The first meeting of the State Plan Commission required under the 2002 Federal Help America Vote Act will be held Tuesday, March 18, 2003 beginning at 9:30 AM in Conference Room A, Lower Level of the Nebraska State Office Building.
The 16-member Commission is responsible for devising a state plan to bring Nebraska into compliance with the 2002 Help America Vote Act to qualify for federal funding. Issues covered will be how the state will establish the election fund; how the federal monies will be used; how the state will meet the new federal requirements; how the state will measure performance in implementing this plan; and how the state will conduct ongoing management of the plan.
Commission members were appointed by Secretary of State John Gale last month.
