The new law impacts the Electrical Division’s licensing procedures. All applicants for electrical apprenticeship and license will need to complete the United States Citizenship Attestation form and submit it with their applications. Verification applicants must complete this form to prevent any delay in issuing licenses after passing the examination.(excerpt from The State of Nebraska Electrical Division official website).
