We did it! After overcoming two filibusters and a veto, the Nebraska Unicameral voted 30-19 to repeal the death penalty. A tremendous thank you to the thousands of people who brought us to this moment after decades of hard work.
After two hours of debate, we overcame yet another filibuster, and the legislature voted 32-15 to repeal the death penalty. The debate today was stirring, with our allies speaking eloquently on the myriad reasons why the death penalty is a bad policy for Nebraska.
