Today in a 3 city press conference stretching from Scottsbluff to Omaha was the reveal of Blueprint Nebraska.
 
"This is intended to be a state wide effort involving business and community leaders from across the state," said Bryan Slone the President of the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce 
 
Blueprint Nebraska was launched to the press along with the public a video, and it's based off of Blueprint Mississippi in which Hank Bounds was a key part of.
 
"From Mississippi it created thousands of jobs really high paying jobs and I have absolute belief that we're going to see the same kind of success in Nebraska that we observed in Mississippi," said Hank Bound NU President. 
 
Now for the impact that it could have here in Nebraska, that is still unknown.
 
"To get out in front of that process and say we are going to create X number of jobs or Y types of jobs," says Bounds "the process is designed in a way to really understand ourselves in a very meaningful way through research and then go out and ask Nebraskans what is it that you want for the future of your children."
 
On the Blueprint Nebraska committee is the combination of 21 different Nebraska leaders that span the whole state, and the difference of opinion on moving the state forward, doesn't strike fear in the governor.
 
"There will be differences in opinion but I think that if we keep the same mission in mind which is how do we grow our state we'll all work together to be able to come up with what is that plan going to look like going forward," said Gov. Pete Ricketts. 
 
 They feel like this is going to be 12 month to 16 month process to get it fully running and they want all Nebraskans to give their opinion on the future of the state.
