Legislation introduced by State Senator Deb Fischer (District 43), LB 690, passed the first round of debate in the Nebraska Legislature by the substantial margin of 31-2 (with 16 absent or not voting). LB 690 now moves to Select File where it will be on track for final passage.
This important piece of pro-hunting legislation would create a mentored hunting program and lower the hunting age in Nebraska. LB690 is part of the Families Afield Initiative that is a cooperative effort between NRA, the National Wild Turkey Federation, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance and National Shooting Sports Foundation.
NRA-ILA will continue to monitor LB 690 and alert the NRA members in Nebraska on its status in the Legislature. Please check back to www.NRAILA.org for any new details on this important hunting legislation.
