December 10: Build More Housing
Virtual news conference on Nebraska housing needs

The Platte Institute will host a virtual news conference for its latest policy brief “Build More Housing: Land Use Reform Opportunities for Nebraska’s Cities.” A copy of the report will be available in a forthcoming release and at

A new state law (LB866) requires large and medium-sized Nebraska cities to submit action plans for increasing affordable housing in their communities. The paper discusses reforms Nebraska’s cities can make to local zoning policies to remove regulatory obstacles to building more affordable housing options.

The news conference will be held on Zoom on Thursday, December 10, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. Central Time. Registration is required at this link.

Report author Emily Hamilton, Ph.D., Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, will provide an overview of the paper and take Q&A through Zoom. The program may be recorded for broadcast. Video and audio recordings will also be included in a release after the conference.
