A Lot of Bills

We’ve only got a couple of more days of bill introductions, and you can tell that by the sheer numbers that are getting tossed into the bin.  Lots of bills were introduced today.  Two that we’re watching especially closely right now: LR 292, a legislative resolution sponsored by Sen. Tony Fulton; and LB 261 sponsored by Sen. Rogert.

LR 292 is a “sovereignty resolution” which will have little real effect–but which is a nice step in the direction of getting people to talk about states’ rights and state sovereignty.  We generally support this, and encourage our friends and members to let their Senators know that they’d like to see this resolution passed.

LB 261 is potentially dangerous–it provides for machine reading of drivers’ license information (found on the scan bar on the back of the license) by retailers.  While in and of itself it seems harmless enough, since anytime you write a check, or if you are carded buying liquor or tobacco, you will show the clerk your license, one worry is that this becomes an easy way to create a database by businesses that perhaps shouldn’t have that access.

  1. Everything posted was very logical. However, think on this, what if you added a little content?
    I am not saying your content isn’t good., but what if you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean A Lot of Bills | NebraskaLiberty’s Unicam Watch is
    kinda boring. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create news titles to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers interested about everything’ve got to
    say. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

  2. Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks
