Fiscal 'cliff' deal proving elusive

With just hours to avert the so-called Fiscal Cliff, South Dakota Senator John Thune says he's frustrated at how long it's taking to come to a deal.  The Republican told The Associated Press Sunday night that "every day, we get closer."  He says that it's difficult for Democrats and Republicans to reach a compromise because the parties are deeply divided in how to approach financial issues.  However, Thune says he's hopeful for a vote Monday.

Two proposals to change Nebraska driving laws

Nebraska's Highway Safety Administrator is proposing two plans to improve driver safety.  Fred Zwonechek says one would apply to texting while driving.  The other would make it a primary offense for drivers and front-seat passengers to not wear seatbelts.  Current Nebraska law considers driving without a seat belt a secondary offense.
