The owner of a Nebraska dry-cleaning business has pleaded no contest to charges that accused him of causing the explosion that destroyed his business. The Omaha World-Herald reports that 54-year-old Michael McKernan of Valley entered the plea Thursday to second-degree arson and burning to defraud an insurer. McKernan owned Wardrobe Spa. He was there on Oct. 7, 2018, when the building exploded. Deputy Sarpy County Attorney Ben Perlman said McKernan had intentionally drilled holes into gas lines that connected to a dryer and a furnace.

Public meetings set on health insurance marketplace

Aug 15, 2012

Eight public meetings will be held statewide as Nebraska works to put together a state-based health insurance exchange program.

A State Senator from Omaha says the Nebraska Legislature should begin work to set up a health insurance marketplace, and that process should include public input.

A meeting last week in Lincoln brought together state officials, the insurance industry, and other stakeholders to discuss the state-based health exchange following the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling last month on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
