LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska lawmakers are expected to end this year’s session with one day to spare.

Speaker Galen Hadley says lawmakers will meet for their final day on Friday, the 89th day of the session. The last day had been scheduled for June 5, after several layover days.

The session has been marked by high-profile votes to increase gas taxes and abolish the death penalty. Lawmakers also passed a bill that would end Nebraska’s ban on driver’s licenses for youth who were brought to the country illegally as children but allowed to stay under a federal program.
