Lawmakers Advance Alcohol Enforcement Proposal

Posted: 18 April, 2013

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lawmakers have advanced a scaled-back proposal to boost alcohol enforcement in Nebraska, but its fate this year depends on the budget. The bill by Sen. Russ Karpisek of Wilber would require the Nebraska State Patrol to hire six new troopers. The patrol would then have to join forces with the state alcohol commission and designate six of its officers to focus on alcohol enforcement. Lawmakers granted first-round approval to the bill on Wednesday with a 26-1 vote. The original proposal would have added 15 new officers. Karpisek says he will press ahead with the legislation if there's still money in the state budget later this year. If there isn't, he says he will hold off until next year.
