Legislature Today (1/10/13): Taxation, firearms, agriculture
Senators introduced more than 100 bills of their own on this second day of the session. Some of the notable ones from Thursday include:
LB 5 from Senator Bob Krist. Having to do with income taxation. He hopes to exempt social security benefits and military retirement.
Sen. Ashford's LB 50 would prohibit unreasonable placement of a firearm where a minor may unlawfully possess it.
LB 101 deals with valuation changes for agricultural and horticultural land. That was introduced by Sen. Watermeier.
And LR 2CA would require that any bill that imposes or increases a tax be approved by 'a majority of the members of the Legislature plus 4.'
