Title: Establishing an Age Limit on Safe Haven Law

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill to limit the age at which a child can legally be left in the custody of a Nebraska hospital employee to thirty days old or younger.

Note:

NOTE: A BILL WITH AN EMERGENCY CLAUSE REQUIRES A SEPARATE TWO-THIRDS VOTE OF THE LEGISLATURE FOR THE CLAUSE TO PASS. IF THE CLAUSE IS PASSED, THE BILL GOES INTO EFFECT IMMEDIATELY UPON THE GOVERNOR'S SIGNATURE.

NOTE: THIS IS A BILL PROPOSED BY THE GOVERNOR, AND THEREFORE THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE IS LISTED AS AN OFFICIAL SPONSOR, BUT IT IS NOT A PROPOSAL OFFERED BY THE SPEAKER, BUT RATHER INTRODUCED ON THE GOVERNOR'S BEHALF.
