  • GUN STOLEN IN 2007 FROM NEBRASKA FACTORS IN SIOUX CITY HOMICIDE INVESTIGATIONGUN STOLEN IN 2007 FROM NEBRASKA FACTORS IN SIOUX CITY HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION

    Nebraska authorities say one of 79 firearms stolen from a Lincoln store in 2007 has turned up in Sioux City. Public Safety Director Tom Casady says Sioux City police found the handgun among several guns in the home where they believe 26-year-old Javier Cheron was fatally wounded January 10th. It’s not known yet if that’s the weapon that was used to kill Cheron. A suspect, 60-year-old Liborio Martinez-Rubio, has been charged with several weapons and drug counts. The 79 guns were stolen a decade ago, October 1st of 2007, when men broke into a Lincoln Scheels store and left with the weapons within three minutes. Police recovered some of the guns the following day and arrested the burglars, who eventually were prosecuted. Casady says 55 of the stolen guns have now turned up in several states and even Mexico.

    Nebraska lawmakers have kicked off debate on an industry-backed bill that would impose new regulations on fantasy sports websites. Sen. Tyson Larson of O’Neill argued Tuesday that his bill would protect consumers from bad actors in the fantasy sports industry who allow computer algorithms to stack the odds against players. The bill could help companies such as DraftKings and FanDuel gain a better foothold in Nebraska and would require them to register with the Nebraska Department of Revenue. Opponents say the measure would help an industry that they view as a form of expanded gambling. AP The post NEBRASKA BILL COULD REGULATE FANTASY SPORTS WEBSITES appeared first on KSCJ 1360.

    Governor Kim Reynolds has left the door open to Iowa requiring certain Medicaid recipients to work as a condition of health care coverage. Reynolds had this short response when asked by reporters Tuesday about work rules for able-bodied Medicaid recipients: http://kscj.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/LOOK.mp3 OC….down the road. :02 Reynolds wouldn’t give a timeline, adding she’s focused on separate workforce development initiatives. President Donald Trump’s administration announced recently it will let states implement certain requirements as a condition of receiving Medicaid benefits. It could involve making people enrolled in Medicaid find work, attend school, enroll in job training or perform community service. A spokesman wit the Department of Human Services which oversees the state’s privatized Medicaid program says the agency is reviewing the federal guidance.

  • NEBRASKA TO CONSIDER RAISING SPEED LIMITSNEBRASKA TO CONSIDER RAISING SPEED LIMITS

    Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts is backing a bill that would raise the speed limit on parts of Interstate 80 and other state highways. The bill introduced Tuesday would allow the state Department of Transportation to increase the limits to 80 mph on sections of I-80, up from the current 75 mph. Sen. John Murante of Gretna, who introduced the bill, says the department would immediately raise the speed limit on I-80 between Omaha and Lincoln if the proposal goes into effect. Many other rural highways and expressways would see speed limit increases of 5 mph. Ricketts says the measure would make Nebraska’s transportation system more effective, efficient and customer-focused. It’s likely to face resistance from highway safety groups, which argue that higher speed limits have been linked to more fatalities.
