April 10, 2015
NLINCOLN – Nebraska Cattlemen (NC) today applauded the Nebraska Legislature's Transportation and Telecommunications Committee for advancing LB 623, introduced by Sen. Jeremy Nordquist of Omaha. If passed, the bill would provide immigrants with deferred action for childhood arrival (DACA) status the opportunity to obtain Nebraska driver's licenses. NC policy supports comprehensive immigration reform to ensure a thriving employee base for beef cattle producers.
"Nebraska Cattlemen appreciates the Committee's efforts to bring this common sense measure forward," said NC Vice President of Regulatory and Legal Affairs Kristen Hassebrook. "The broad base of 25 cosponsors is a testament to the bill's reach as well as the positive impact its passage will have statewide. We encourage members of the body to recognize this potential and support LB 623.
