Legislation: debt collection

02/22/2017, Legislation, Consumer Debt

LB 526 would have required appointment of counsel for contempt proceedings related to debt collection.  It died in the Judiciary Committee after a hearing (the bill was indefinitely postponed on 5/23/17).  Portions of the bill (but not the right to counsel) went into LB 259, which did pass.
