LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska lawmakers and their staffs can no longer use the state’s secure network for personal business under a new policy approved by a legislative committee.

The Legislature’s Executive Board voted 7-0 on Thursday to adopt the new rules.

The policy makes clear that only lawmakers and legislative staffers can use the state’s secure network. It forbids them from using that network to access adult content or participate in illegal activities. It also prohibits them from posting information on personal, commercial or campaign-related websites.

The policy also requires senators and employees to change their login passwords at least once a year. If a password is shared, the person who owns the account is responsible for all activity.

Senators and staff can still use the Capitol’s public network for non-legislative purposes.
