The Nebraska National Guard's new $27 million Joint Forces Headquarters building officially opened Tuesday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The 165,000-square-foot building houses the leadership and administrative functions of the Nebraska Army and Air National Guard, as well as the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency.

It also houses the state's Emergency Operations Center, the Nebraska National Guard's Joint Operations Center and a State Patrol dispatch center.

Attending Tuesday's ceremony was U.S. Sen. Ben Nelson, who said he was proud of the work he did to help allocate funds for the new headquarters.
