Nebraska state senators advance permitless conceal carry bill
Lawmakers approved LB77′s second-round vote after yet another filibuster
LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) - Amid their late session Tuesday night, Nebraska lawmakers again voted in favor of a bill legalizing conceal carry without a permit.
LB77 would let anyone who can legally purchase a gun to also conceal it in public without needing a permit to do so or a safety training class.
State senators voted 30-10 in favor. The bill now moves to a third round of debate.
The Unicameral then turned its attention to a bill that would change provisions in the Nebraska Liquor Control Act before adjourning for the night Tuesday just after 9 p.m.
Lawmakers began their first long day of the session Tuesday working through a rule change motion, which they adopted. The proposed change came after a lengthy end to the first round of debate on LB574.
The Unicameral then unanimously passed — 46-0 — the first round of voting on LB276, which aims to increase access to mental health and substance use treatment.
Lawmakers are expecting to put in another long day on Wednesday.
