Nebraska State Senator Paul Schumacher (R-Columbus) has introduced LB 566. It makes it possible for proponents of an initiative or recall to collect signatures electronically. Groups using electronic signature-gathering methods would pay a special fee to the government to cover the extra costs. The fee would be $5,000 generally, or $10,000 for initiatives that intend to try to change the Constitution. Here is the text of the bill. Thanks to Kent Bernbeck for this news.
