Otoe county is partially up on their new 400 MHZ frequencies. There was a good turnout for the legislative breakfast at the capitol. 27 out of 49 Senators attended. One of things being considered is a raise of the term limits to 3 consecutive terms. The NSVFA is looking at 24 bills, the specialty license plates, the slow down and move over bill, one to give levy power back to fire district boards , the safe cigarette bill , letting volunteers participate in the state health insurance and a possible $500.00 tax benefit for volunteers. Also being looked at are LB 522 and LB 523 on users funds and how they are collected and also how audits take place.
