"The Good Life" here to stay in Nebraska

Posted: Updated:

Nebraska tourism officials are clarifying their efforts to change the state's official slogan and symbol.
 
The Nebraska Tourism Commission said a bill introduced Wednesday in the Legislature is aimed at giving officials the power to rebrand. The current slogan, "Welcome to NEBRASKAland: where the West begins,'' includes the image of a covered wagon. It was approved in 1963.
 
The tourism office has received complaints from the public over the misconception that officials are trying to get rid of an unofficial ``The Good Life'' slogan on many state highway signs.
 
Nebraska Tourism Commission Executive Director Kathy McKillip says the bill is not about taking away a specific slogan or symbol, but about creating a brand for state tourism. They plan to unveil a new slogan and symbol this spring.
