LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Peddlers and hawkers would have to register with counties before knocking on doors under a bill advanced by Nebraska lawmakers.

Senators voted 32-0 Tuesday on a bill by Sen. John Murante of Gretna that would give counties the authority to create a registry of individuals advertising or promoting businesses by solicitation.

Cities already have the authority to regulate solicitors, but the bill’s supporters say residents living outside city or village limits are bombarded with strangers avoiding the registry process.

Murante says the free permits would certify a group or individuals as legitimate and would allow county authorities a way to track their activities if necessary.


The bill is LB577
