A bill introduced by State Senator Heath Mello, that would've given the state tourism board the power to change the official state slogan, has been pulled.
The official slogan is "Welcome to NEBRASKAland, where the west begins."
That was written into law in 1963, but dozens of slogans have been used in the last 40 years.
Mello says he has no problem with "The Good Life," which is currently on road signs through the state. Mello says the bill was meant to get the "NEBRASKAland" state slogan out of the books, giving more flexibility to the tourism commission when it comes to branding.
Initial confusion over the issue led to social media uproar.
