Suspend In-person Reporting During the Pandemic

The Nebraska Criminal Defense Attorneys Association (NCDAA) and ReConnect, Inc., have teamed with Nebraskans Unafraid (NU) to call on Gov. Ricketts to temporarily suspend in-person reporting requirements for registered people during the pandemic.

The request was made in a May 11, 2020 letter to the governor. The letter was signed by Joseph L. Howard, president of the NCDAA Executive Board; Jeanie Mezger, NU Board member; and LaVon Stennis-Williams, Executive Director of ReConnect, Inc.

‘By mandating in person registration during this pandemic, the State forces its citizens to choose between the health and well-being of themselves, their families, and the public at large and compliance with the law,’ the letter says.

Governor’s Town Hall

NET is broadcasting a series of COVID-19 town halls with the governor. Gov. Ricketts has a couple of guests scheduled for each week.

At this web page, people can ask their questions ahead of time.

To ask your question during the program, call one of these numbers: 800-676-5446402-472-1212.

At his town hall last week, there was not a single question about COVID-19 in the prisons. Not a single one. Not even about how to protect prison staff.
