LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska attorney general is backing a piece of legislation he says is crucial to protecting consumer information.

Sen. Heath Mello of Omaha introduced a bill Friday on behalf of Attorney General Doug Peterson that would allow parents to place a freeze on a minor’s credit report in cases of identity theft. It also expands the definition of deceptive solicitation on behalf of a charity.

Mello says the bill will help modernize Nebraska’s consumer protection laws and allow Peterson’s office to conduct stronger investigations.
