Day 1 Bill Introductions
January 6th, 2022

The 107th Nebraska Legislature, 2nd Session convened yesterday. I introduced four bills yesterday:

LB731 allows political subdivisions to require reasonable notice to adjacent property owners or residents prior to installation of a small wireless facility, and requires certification that the installation or modification of a utility pole complies with the Americans With Disabilities Act. Sen. Megan Hunt joined me as a cosponsor of this bill.

LB732 prohibits deception in questioning of juveniles by police. Sen. Terrell McKinney joined me as a cosponsor of this bill.

LB733 prohibits contributions to ballot question campaigns by foreign nationals. A recent FEC ruling stated that such contributions are not prohibited by federal law.

LB734 caps contributions to candidate committees at $5,000 annually. Currently, there is no maximum allowable contribution to a candidate for state or local office in Nebraska.

I also joined as a cosponsor on three other bills introduced yesterday.

LB745, introduced by Sen. Machaela Cavanaugh, provides for gender neutral marriage licenses.

LB766, introduced by Sen. Mark Kolterman, provides for funding of pancreatic cancer research.

LB782, introduced by Sen. Tony Vargas, increases funding to the Nebraska Perinatal Quality Improvement Collaborative.

Bill introduction continues today through the first 10 legislative days of this session. The 10th day is currently scheduled for January 20.
