Roundup of recently introduced Legislation

January 23, 2014

LINCOLN--Dozens more legislative bills and resolutions piled up on Nebraska lawmakers' plates this week. Here are some highlights: LB861 by Sen. Russ Karpisek of Wilber aims to prevent the sales of e-cigarettes to minors. Nebraska has no law preventing the sale of e-cigarettes to those younger than 18, but many stores refuse to sell them to minors anyway. If passed, the punishment for selling e-cigarettes to minors would be the same as for selling cigarettes, cigars or chewing tobacco.
