Gov. Heineman Signs Liens Bill into Law

Posted: Updated:

Governor Dave Heineman signed LB210 into state law Thursday. According to Secretary of State John Gale, the bill aims to stem the filing of bogus liens.

Gale says that when individuals file bogus liens it creates a long term impact on the victim's ability to secure credit or apply for loans.

"These types of liens have been a growing problem over the past several years. They serve no purpose, other than to harass the victims," said Gale. "Now under LB210, my office will be able to file what is known as a termination statement against these bogus financial statements."

"This allows us to take action in such a way it may save victims to the time and cost associated with having to go to court to get the situation resolved," added Gale.

The Nebraska Bar Association, Nebraska Bankers Association and the Nebraska Uniform Law Commissioners aided in drafting the bill.
