Nebraska Legislature Advances Death Penalty Repeal Bill

WASHINGTON - Earlier today, by a vote of 30-16, Nebraska lawmakers voted to pass LB268. This is the second vote for the bill that would abolish the death penalty in the state. There is one more round of required voting on the bill before it goes to Governor Pete Rickett's desk for signature. The 30-16 vote is currently enough to overcome a veto, by Governor if necessary.
