Nebraska LB 60 could be problematic

Reporter John Chapman of Omaha television station WOWT-TV looks at LB 60, which will have a hearing this week.

The bill was introduced by State Sen. Brett Lindstrom in response to a Nebraska Supreme Court decision allowing a mother to retain custody of her teenage daughters after she married a registered sex offender.
