Heineman Considers Prison Reform Bill

Heineman Considers Prison Reform Bill


Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman says he hasn’t had time to thoroughly consider the prison reform bill sent to him by the legislature, but says Nebraska needs to do whatever it can to avoid building a new prison

Nebraska will work with the Council of State Governments to ease prison overcrowding…though Heineman is careful not to call it overcrowding. . .

The legislature returns on Thursday to wrap up the session.
