Revenge Porn, Abortion Laws Among New Laws Taking Effect

Sep 4, 2019

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska will clamp down on so-called revenge porn, take aim at scam phone calls from fake numbers and impose new requirements on abortion providers under new state laws.

The 170 new laws officially went on the books Sunday, three months after this year's legislative session ended.

Other new laws will impose new standards for civics lessons in schools, crack down on human traffickers and make it illegal to tattoo the whites of a person's eyes except when it's medically necessary.

Still other laws will shield farmers from public nuisance lawsuits and require state law enforcement to study cases involving missing Native American women.
