(Neb.) - Bike safety, flu shots among smaller Neb. bills
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Despite all the hot-button issues this year, lawmakers have approved low-profile measures that could just as easily show up in the lives of Nebraskans.
Lawmakers will end their session Wednesday with a new law designed to protect bicyclists, a requirement that hospitals offer flu shots to patients during winter months and the chance for customers to buy liquor on Sunday mornings. Some Nebraskans will have more options for broadband service.
All of the measures were approved with little controversy, as lawmakers spent more time debating child welfare reforms and tax policy. Lawmakers will spend their final day trying to override Gov. Dave Heineman's vetoes of a city sales tax bill and a proposal that would restore prenatal care coverage for the unborn children of illegal immigrants.
