Nebraska – 19

History occurred on May 27, 2015 as Nebraska became the 19th state to abolish the death penalty.

On May 20, 2015, the unicameral state legislature voted to repeal the death penalty. The governor, as promised, vetoed the repeal bill.

Seven days later, the legislature stood strong and voted to override Gov. Ricketts’ veto of the repeal bill by a vote of 30-19.

The action will be challenged in the courts and on the campaign trail.

But, for now and hopefully forever, the death penalty is gone in Nebraska.

19 and counting!

See you along the Trail.
