LB 947: Professional Licences for DACA Individuals

February 19, 2016 — Senator Hansen prioritized LB 947 February 19. This is the bill that ensures that DACA youth and other similarly-situated individuals can obtain a license to practice their chosen profession, and thereby contribute fully to Nebraska’s communities and economy. The great thing is that LB 947 made it out of committee UNANIMOUSLY.The committee amendment they filed streamlines a couple of things in the bill and address a few technical concerns that were raised before the hearing, but otherwise moves on as intended to the General File, giving the full Legislature the opportunity to debate and make a final vote.
