Nebraska just moved one step closer to repealing the death penalty. Yesterday we asked for your help in contacting legislators in Nebraska to ask them to vote "YES" to LB 268 which would repeal the state's death penalty. I'm happy to report that you put the pressure on, and the Nebraska policymakers listened. They voted 32-15 to end the death penalty in Nebraska. We thank you!
We're not done yet though. Governor Pete Ricketts has vowed that he will veto this bill. We need all 32 legislators who voted to repeal the death penalty to hold their votes in order to override a governor veto.
Thank you for being part of the success. Thanks to your help, Nebraska could be the 19th state to abolish the death penalty.
