LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) - Nebraska lawmakers are still debating the new legislative district maps as their weekend deadline quickly approaches.

The clock is ticking at the Unicameral and lawmakers know they’re running out of time, they adjourned after just 15 minutes Thursday morning so senators could proceed with negotiations.

If senators fail to reach a deal this weekend the debate is expected to be delayed until the next legislative session in January. As a potential result, primary elections and other elections could also be delayed.
