Nebraska: Senator Bostar’s Bill Heads to Governor Pillen’s Desk

On April 11th, Senator Eliot Bostar’s bill, the Adopt the Pacific Conflict Stress Test Act and the Foreign Adversary Contracting Prohibition Act (LB 1300), received final approval by a vote of 46-0. The bill will now go to Governor Pillen’s desk for his approval.

The Adopt the Pacific Conflict Stress Test Act and the Foreign Adversary Contracting Prohibition Act will prepare Nebraska’s supply chains and critical infrastructure for the risk of a Pacific conflict with China. Senator Bostar stated, “Just by preparing here, here in Nebraska, we are in effect doing our part to prevent a conflict from even starting”.

CTT applauds Senator Bostar’s leadership to protect Nebraskans from the threat of the Chinese Communist Party and encourages Governor Pillen sign the bill into law, which will then take effect the day after signing.
