Protecting the Dignity of Life

Nebraskans recognize and understand the dignity and value of human life.  It’s evident in the homemade billboards you see on state highways urging Nebraskans to “choose life.”  You can see it in the actions of Nebraskans who generously support pregnancy centers with their time and financial resources.  And it’s reflected in the work of state officials over the years who have put in place laws that protect unborn babies.

Gov. Ricketts Signs Bottle Club Licensing Measure

LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts hosted a ceremonial bill signing event in the Governor’s Hearing Room for LB 1120.  LB 1120 incorporates LB 747, which was introduced by State Senator Theresa Thibodeau of Omaha.  The bill creates a new classification for a “bottle club” license under the Nebraska Liquor Control Act.  Previously, bottle clubs had been unregulated by the state, allowing certain establishments to take advantage of a gray area in the state’s liquor licensing laws.  LB 1120 was passed 48-0-1 by the Legislature.
