Legislation: debt collection proceedings
06/21/2017, Legislation, Consumer Debt
LB 526 would have, among other things, required appointment of counsel for contempt proceedings related to debt collection. It died in the Judiciary Committee after a hearing (it was indefinitely postponed on 5/23/17). Portions of the bill (but not the right to counsel) went into LB 259, which did pass.
|The NCCRC submitted testimony in support of the bill.|
