January 16, 2017 no hearing date has been set for LB 75 before the Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee.  I eagerly await an opportunity to be heard on this bill.  I’m one of 7,000+ Nebraskans that are disenfranchised  from voting .
    We are barred outside of prison by the arbitrary law that makes us wait two-years after discharge  to exercise our right to vote.  The two-year waiting period  is capricious and absolutely no administrative or policy purpose.
    Studies demonstrate that exercising the right to vote is a pro-social behavioral activity linked to reducing crime and increasing public safety. What citizen would be against that?
