Despite legislative gridlock for the past two days, LB65, authored by House Speaker Bob Leddy of Gettysburg, was passed by the Cornhusker Boys’ State Legislature on Thursday afternoon. Pending approval by Governor Larsen, this bill would create an “Energy Independence Commission” and establish efficiency standards for Cornhusker Boys’ State. Other bills debated on Thursday include LB135, which would legalize gambling in the state, and LB14, which would allow off-road vehicles to be driven in forests and parks near Chadron. LB135 was passed and is pending Governor Larsen’s signature; no updates yet on LB14.
