Nebraska Legislature

NORFOLK - Madison County Sheriff Todd Volk is paying attention to a few bills being considered in the Nebraska Legislature.

At the Madison County GOP meeting Wednesday, Volk said one of the bills is LB 160 which would add an additional one percent contribution from the county into law enforcement officers’ retirement funds.

Volk said LB 77, the conceal carry bill, has gotten a little bit better with amendments that were recently put in it.

"Making it a little bit harder of a crime if you commit a serious misdemeanor while you're carrying. I do like that part of it."

Volk said the bill has gotten through the first hearing and will have a second hearing soon.
