Day 2 & 3 Bill Introductions
January 7th, 2022

The first week of the new legislative session is behind us. Floor debate begins next week on a number of bills, and bill introduction continues.

Thursday and Friday, I introduced three new bills.

LB810 improves reporting requirements of juvenile room confinement.

LB878 provides for automatic bail review after 14 days for misdemeanor and city or village ordinance violations. Sen. Terrell McKinney joined me as a cosponsor of this bill.

LB879 provides for an answer of no contest in juvenile proceedings.

I also joined as a cosponsor on three bills, introduced by Sen. McKinney:

LB880 prohibits a jail or correctional facility commissary from selling goods at a markup of more than ten percent.

LB882 requires preservation of certain disciplinary records of law enforcement and the maintenance of Brady and Giglio lists.

LB883 requires confidentiality of minors tried as adults and informs juveniles of their rights in an interrogation.

The Legislature will return on Monday for Day 4.
