Nebraskans are currently at risk for inadvertently violating the law as they travel through the state due to local gun ordinances that are more restrictive than state law. LB 68, sponsored by state Senator Mike Hilgers (LD 21), would fix this problem by creating a preemption statute to eliminate this confusing patchwork of laws.
Each senator is allowed to designate one bill each year as their personal priority. Senator Hilgers has made LB 68 his priority bill, ensuring that it will be heard in the Legislature.
