LB 1 limits the age of children who can be abandoned legally by their parents without prosecution to 72 hours.
LB 3 creates a 2-tired system of legal abandonment: one for infants of up to one year of age; the other for children between the ages of 1 and 16. The second tier also creates regional and state “intervention teams” to assist families in abandonment crisis enabling them to access services and to avoid abandoning their children. There is no intervention team for infants. Apparently babies don’t mind being tossed away with no fuss or muss. Only Big Kids do.
Both of these bills are unacceptable.
Repeal is the only solution.
