Do I have any recourse for lack of air conditioning in my apartment?

I've been without air conditioning for the past two weeks in my apartment, and it seems like it will be another two weeks before I get it. My landlord doesn't seem to care, and I don't know if I have any options in this situation.

I've never been in this situation before and I'm not sure what the best course of action would be. I am going to get a copy of the lease (I know I should have one already but I've misplaced it) and see if it has any details about air conditioning in there. Is AC generally something that a tenant is entitled too, or is it just a perk? Since I can't get them to fix it any faster, as they're doing the entire complex, my main goal is to not have to pay full rent to live and sleep in a sweatbox. I'm in Nebraska fwiw.
(Bonus points if you can help me cool down my apartment without having to buy an air conditioner.)
