Nebraska's mountain lion automobile license plate bill passes 1st hurdle

In addition to authoring Nebraska's Legislative Bill 127 to remove the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission's (NGPC) authority to issue hunting licenses for mountain lions, State Senator Ernie Chambers has also introduced legislation to help Nebraskan's better understand these special creatures.

Legislative Bill 474, which passed the Transportation and Telecommunications Committee on a 6-0 vote, would create a specialty "mountain lion conservation" license plate. Proceeds from sales of the specialty plates, estimated at $19,000 a year, would help finance programs to educate the public about wildlife conservation: including mountain lions.

Debate on Legislative Bill 474 has not yet been scheduled.
