Greetings Northeast Lincoln!
Bills Passed On Final Reading
This month, the Legislature passed LB 146 and LB 93 on final reading. The Governor signed both bills into law on February 14th. LB146 will allow anyone guilty of an infraction to petition the court to set aside the conviction after paying the requisite fine or completing the assigned probation. Prior to LB 146, this was only allowed for misdemeanors and felonies. I appreciate the work of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Law Civil Clinic students and faculty who identified the problem and worked with us on the bill. The Legislature also passed LB 93 this month. LB 93 will adopt the Automatic License Plate Reader Privacy Act. You can read more about LB 93 in the Unicameral Update article, here. I appreciate the help of my fellow state senators in passing these important pieces of legislation this session.
This year, I have selected LB 986 as my personal priority bill. I introduced LB 986, which would authorize Neighborhood Improvement Districts (NIDs) in Nebraska. Based on successful Business Improvement Districts, NIDs would provide another tool for neighborhood improvement in Lincoln. You can read more about LB 986 in the Unicameral Update article, here. I am excited about all of the possibilities NIDs provide, and hope to advance LB 986 this session.
This month, we held hearings on our remaining bills: LB 1056, LB 986, LB 1083, LB 930, LB 1029 and LB 1010. For more information on LB 930, see the Unicameral Update article here; and an article on LB 1056 here. Thank you to all who came out to testify on these bills.
