The state of Nebraska requires certain professionals, contract workers, and businesses to post a surety bond in order to do business. Nebraska surety bonds are also required by many county and city governments within the state, especially in more populous areas such as Omaha.
Unlike some other states, NE has little overlap of state and local bonding requirements. This makes it less likely that you’ll need multiple bonds. For example, the state has no contractor bond requirements, but in Omaha you’ll need to be bonded before you can work in certain trades.
