To Legislative Committee on Judiciary

Bill L.B. 475

This bill would allow for garnishment of independent contractors providing services for the state or a political subdivision to the same extent as such laws apply under existing Nebraska statutes to officers and employees of private corporations.  The bill would also apply to earnings of independent contractors whose earnings were rendered to any third party for which the state or any county, township, municipal corporation, municipally owned corporation, or school district is obligated to pay for such services.
