Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning has unveiled new bills that seek to protect consumers from identity theft, increase penalties for disarming a police officer, and keep public money out of companies that support Iran.
Bruning unveiled the proposals Thursday as lawmakers began to introduce bills for this year's session.
One measure would require businesses to notify the attorney general's office about data breaches that affect Nebraskans. Another would make disarming a police officer a felony, punishable by 1 to 20 years in prison.
A third measure would prevent public funds from going to companies supporting Iran.
Bruning's office is also supporting a bill that would classify voluntary manslaughter as a felony punishable by up to 50 years in prison.
