February 22, 2016 — Charles Shane Ellison, our deputy executive director/legal director, testified before the Nebraska Judiciary Committee Feb. 19 to oppose LB 966. He is quoted in this article at WashingtonTimes.com regarding Senator Kintner’s withdrawal of the bill. Ellison testified that LB966 threatens the important work performed by our refugee resettlement agencies and undermines Nebraska’s values of hospitality and compassion. Read his testimony.
If you contacted the Judiciary Committee through our website Action Alert you helped stop this proposal motivated by misinformation, unfounded fear and prejudice, as opposed to any legitimate state interest. Thank you!
