The Governor of Nebraska signed LB151 into law of May 25, 2011. The legislation eliminated the intermediary three-judge Review Panel. The legislation goes into effect three (3) months from the adjournment of the legislative session or on August 27, 2011. Therefore, appeals from decisions of the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court after August 27, 2011, will go directly to the Nebraska Court of Appeals.
