Bill affecting Neb. geologists advances in Unicameral

Posted: Updated:

Geologists in Nebraska will face stricter regulations under a bill being pushed through the Nebraska legislature.

Only three bills were discussed this morning on the legislative floor this morning, with the bulk of discussion dealing with geologists.

The comprehensive bill would require them to respond to disclosure questions to renew their license.

Senator Ken Haar says even though many Nebraskans don't know *what* geologists do on a regular basis, their research is pivotal.

"A lot of what they do in Nebraska has to do with groundwater...what's going on under the ground."

The bill advanced to the second round of debate, despite being the only bill to receive several "nays" for advancement.
