Nebraska lawmakers introduced 98 measures Wednesday, the final day of bill introduction for the new legislative session.

Among the proposals were LB590, sponsored by North Platte Sen. Mike Groene, which would change time periods for ballots for early voting.

LB636 sponsored by Omaha Sen. John Cavanaugh would eliminate cash bail bonds, appearance bonds and related provisions.

LB643, which would protect an individual liberty right to accept or decline a vaccination under a mandatory directive, was introduced by Blair Sen. Ben Hansen.

Thursday, Nebraska Supreme Court Chief Justice Mike Heavican delivers his State of the Judiciary address.

Starting Monday, legislative committees begin all-day hearings in an effort to reduce the number of times senators are gathered as a group in the early part of the session.
