NDP APPLAUDS LEADERSHIP ON DACA

LINCOLN–Thanks to the leadership of Senator Jeremy Nordquist, DACA passed today by an overwhelming majority of votes in the Nebraska Legislature, allowing for young aspiring citizens to obtain driver’s licenses.  The bill was supported unanimously by Democratic senators with only 9 total nay votes coming from Republicans.

Vince Powers made the following statement:

“The leadership of Democrats in the legislature and their ability to build consensus has resulted in solutions that will grow our economy and serve Nebraska families,” said Powers.  “Democrats in the Legislature continue to lead the way to keep Nebraska attractive as a location for new business and increased economic growth.”
