Filing a lawsuit, buying a handgun and getting a vehicle inspected in Nebraska could all become more expensive under a bill introduced in the Legislature.

Ogallala Sen. Ken Schilz submitted a measure (LB919) Tuesday
that seeks to increase fees for certain services offered by law
enforcement agencies and the courts.

The bill would raise a filing fee to $6 for lawsuits filed in
state courts, up from the current $5, and create a new $4 docket
fee for all civil cases.

The Nebraska State Patrol and county sheriffs would impose a $20 fee for vehicle inspections, up from the current $10. And the cost of a criminal background check required to buy a handgun would rise to $10, from the current $5.
