Nebraska Senator introduces a bill allowing electronic signatures for recall and initiative petitions
By Kyle Maichle
Legislative Bill 566 would allow proponents to collect signatures electronically as long they pay a fee to the authorities for the operating costs. According to the bill, the basic fee for proponents to collect signatures electronically is $5,000. The cost doubles to $10,000 for campaigns intending to amend the Nebraska Constitution.
On January 21, 2011, the bill was referred to the Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee.
