The Health Nazis Are At It Again!

Now they want to outlaw smoking in your car. Not to worry though, it’s For The Children.

According to LB93, it “shall be unlawful for an individual to operate or be an occupant in a motor vehicle while smoking if an individual under sixteen years of age is an occupant in the motor vehicle.” This classic piece of nanny-state nazism, introduced by Sen. Gwen Howard of District 9 (Omaha), would impose a $50-to-$150 fine on anyone who violates this law and it appears to be a primary offense, meaning that you can be pulled over specifically for this.

This bill will be discussed by the Transportation and Telecommunications Committee at a hearing tomorrow, March 10, at 1:30pm in room 1113.

Resist the encroaching Totalitarian State! Contact your senator and let them know you won’t tolerate this tyranny! Better yet, go to the hearing and have your say!

    I had noticed this bill early on, but didn’t catch the hearing notice until after the fact.

    According to the Unicameral Update, no one testified in opposition of the bill. That’s pretty depressing.

    This is getting wearisome. Why do these busybodies feel the need to protect us from ourselves all the time? Why do they think that’s what they’re supposed to do?
