A bill intended to address methamphetamine contamination will not make it out of the legislature this year. That is according to Mark Schoenrock, Chairman of the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners, who has been a strong supporter of the bill and testified in front of the legislature on behalf of the bill in February of this year.
LB (Legislative Bill) 756, introduced by Nebraska Senator Tom Brandt, District 32, would change provisions in current law relating to properties contaminated by methamphetamine.
Despite the bill not moving forward at this time, commissioner Schoenrock remains optimistic that the bill will eventually become law, “We’re going to hit it again.”
Fairbury Mayor Spencer Brown has also expressed regret that the bill will not go through, “LB756 is a critical bill, not only for Fairbury, but any small town where meth is a problem. We need to hold landlords accountable to provide safe, quality and clean housing for families.
Pairing LB756 along with other redevelopment projects within Fairbury are critical to its image and success going forward.”
