This article addresses the baffling nature of the nonpartisan Nebraska Unicameral, how it came to be, why and how it works, why it is superior to partisan bicameral legislatures, and why it will remain the sole nonpartisan unicameral in the nation. Much scholarship has addressed the Nebraska Unicameral from the perspective of those who helped to create it, were part of its process, and have studied. Yet, little has been written about the benefits of a nonpartisan system in a one-house legislature. This article attempts to fill that void and explain why the nonpartisan unicameral system is preferable.
