LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued the following statement in observance of Constitution Day.  Constitution Day is observed on September 16, 2016.


“Because of the vision of our Founders in 1787, our country has enjoyed a level of ordered liberty unparalleled in human history.  On Constitution Day, I urge all Nebraskans to pause to reflect on the God-given freedoms recognized in and protected by the U.S. Constitution.  Now more than ever, we must remain vigilant in defending our constitutional rights.  As it states over the entrance to our State Capitol: ‘The Salvation of the State is Watchfulness of the Citizen.’”
