Constitutional Places: The Nebraska Capitol in Marsh v. Chambers

March 20th, 2015

During my trip to Lincoln, Nebraska to speak at the University of Nebraska, I paid a visit to the (unicameral) legislature of the Cornhusker State. This was the site of Marsh v. Chambers, where a chaplain led an invocation prior to sessions. The Court upheld this chaplaincy, and later reaffirmed a similar situation in Town of Greece v. Galloway. Interestingly, the Capitol has two chambers, even though the Legislature is Unicameral. In the other chamber, the Governor was signing proclamations (it is Registered Dietician Awareness Month).
