State legislature votes to ban lion hunting

March 24, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Mountain lions in Nebraska could once again be off-limits to hunters if a bill passed by state senators on Monday becomes law.

Lawmakers gave final approval to a bill that would permanently end the state's mountain lion hunting season just two years after it was approved. The 28-13 vote came a few days after opponents mounted a last-minute filibuster to try to block it.

The bill now heads to Gov. Dave Heineman, who has up to five days to act on the bill. Jen Rae Wang, the governor's communications director, declined to say Monday what action Heineman might take.
