Hearing on Proposed Changes to Sex-offender Law is Set for Thursday, February 12

2-5-2015 Nebraska:

The Nebraska Legislature's Judiciary Committee will hear testimony on LB 290, a bill that would bring Nebraska sex-offender law into minimal conformance with a years-old federal court ruling against the state, on Thursday, February 12.

The hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. in Room 1113 of the Nebraska State Capitol Building in Lincoln. Get there early if you want a good seat. If you want to testify, you can sign up to do so using forms that will be available in the hearing room. ..Continued.. by Eddie Sidgeweck @ Nebraskans Unafraid
