SONA is in full support of LB922. An update to existing statutes to keep animal waste off the streets of our neighborhoods. Don Preister, Chair of the South Omaha Environmental Task Force, has written am excellent testimony a to the importance of the change. Please consider writing a letter of support. Thanks to State Senator Mello for working to keep our neighborhoods and community clean and safe.
LB 922 brings additional attention in statute to the issue. The awareness of increased penalties will serve as a deterrent. It is another tool for us to use in our ongoing efforts. Our goal is to change the offensive behavior of the few, that all of the other 98% of responsible drivers already abide by, but are negatively impacted by. This legislation requires proper operation of truck trailer equipment, which should already be required, and updates an old fine with a more effective increase.
