Senator Hits Brakes On Nebraska Motorcycle Helmet Bill

A proposal to repeal Nebraska's motorcycle helmet law will wait until next year.

Sen. Dave Bloomfield of Hoskins said Thursday that he has asked the speaker to keep his bill off of this year's legislative agenda.

Bloomfield had designated the measure as his priority bill, increasing the chances that it would see debate. But he says lawmakers still have a lot of heavy lifting to do this year, with only 11 working days left in the session.

Lawmakers have debated similar bills numerous times over the last two decades. Bloomfield says he will press ahead with his measure next year, and may designate it as his priority again to ensure that it's debated.
