Pursuant to Nebraska Law, written requests for records are processed within four business days.

The Nebraska Public Service Commission can charge a fee for records requested, if time spent preparing a response exceeds four hours. If the amount of the request exceeds $50.00 the Commission may require a deposit before a request is fulfilled.
Hearing Room Proceedings
Commission cases are heard in the PSC Hearing Room (unless directed otherwise) located in the PSC Office. These proceedings are open to the public; however, only parties involved in the cases are allowed to participate. Members of the media may attend and video/photography is permitted, with certain restrictions pertaining to the areas of the room that can be accessed without interrupting the proceedings. It is advised that members of the media arrive at least 15 minutes before scheduled proceedings (unless otherwise directed) to set up equipment unobtrusively.
Proceedings may also be live-streamed from the hearing room, and the public is invited to watch online. If a proceeding is to be live-streamed, it will be notated on the Commission Calendar.
The Nebraska Public Service Commission is subject to the Nebraska Open Meetings Act.
