All bills introduced by the Legislature are assigned to a committee for a public hearing. Committee hearings conclude today, the 33rd day of the session, and full days of debate will begin on Monday.
Bills advanced to the floor for debate by the full body of the Legislature go through three levels of debate: General File, Select File, and Final Reading.
Bills Advanced to General File
The timing of elections to fill the office of county assessor in counties that are re-assuming the assessment function would be clarified by LB 1101. The bill was advanced by the Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee on a unanimous vote. LB 1101 was introduced by Sen. John Wightman at NACO's request to assure that the offices are filled on the same election cycle as most other county officials.
Bills Advanced to Select File
More than 30 bills were advanced from Select File today. LB 904 would revise annulment and dissolution reporting requirements to reflect the "unknown" status of personal information about the parties in certain instances.
LB 878 was introduced at the request of the Secretary of State to clean-up election laws and move the date for publication of the official election calendar.
LB 801 would eliminate outdated references to "designated county official" in motor vehicle titling statutes.
LB 985 would codify an existing juvenile justice pilot program.
