Death Penalty Ban Looks to pass Legislature, Override Veto

The Nebraska state legislature passed a bill effectively banning the death penalty on Wednesday and did so by a wide enough margin to override any veto by the governor. LB268 was sponsored by Senator Ernie Chambers and was approved with a 32-15 majority which followed two hours of debate and a filibuster. While the governor claimed the death penalty retained "overwhelming support" in Nebraska, the bill would replace it with a life sentence instead. If Governor Pete Ricketts does veto the bill, 30 votes will be needed for an override.
