Nebraska Revised Statute 75-148
Common carrier; issuance of securities; conditions.
A common carrier may issue stock, bonds, notes, or other evidence of indebtedness, payable at periods of more than twelve months after the date thereof, when necessary for the acquisition of property, the construction, completion, extension, or improvement of facilities, the improvement or maintenance of its service, or the discharge or lawful refunding of its obligations if the common carrier first secures from the commission an order authorizing such issue and the amount thereof and stating that in the opinion of the commission the use of the capital to be secured by the issue of such stock, bonds, notes, or other evidence of indebtedness is reasonably required for the purposes of the carrier. A common carrier may issue notes or other evidence of indebtedness for proper corporate purposes and not in violation of any provision of law, payable in periods of not more than twelve months, without such consent if no such note is, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, refunded by any issue of such stock or bonds, or by any evidence of indebtedness running more than twelve months, without the consent of the commission. The provisions of this section shall not apply to the security issuances of common carriers who are under the control of a federal regulatory agency.
