Neb. Counties Show Support for Solicitor Regulation Bill

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Counties may soon have a way to regulate door-to-door salesmen through a bill in the Nebraska Legislature.

Sen. John Murante of Gretna introduced the bill, which was heard by the Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee on Wednesday.

The bill would allow counties to regulate the salesmen through charging a fee, issuing a permit or both.

Murante says his constituents have had a problem with aggressive door-to-door salesmen. Cities can regulate these solicitors but counties do not have the authority to do so. Most of the people Murante represents live outside of a municipality.

The Nebraska Association of County Officials and other county representatives testified in support of the bill. No one testified against the bill.
