Searches for the standard model Higgs boson produced with a Z boson are presented based on data from the CDF and D0 experiments at the Fermilab Tevatron. In events consistent with the decay of the Higgs boson to a bottom-quark pair and the Z boson to electrons or muons, 95% credibility level upper limits are set on the ZH production cross section times the H -> b bbar branching ratio. Improved analysis methods enhance signal sensitivity relative to previous searches beyond the gain due to the larger data sample.
