Each month, an estimated 1 in 20 households in Nebraska have their power shut off due to an inability to pay their utility bills. LB933, introduced by Senator Sue Crawford, would limit fees related to utility shut-offs and provide additional protections to help prevent shut-offs among Nebraskans with disabilities and other serious health issues. LB933 is one of the bills included in an amendment (AM2766) to LB632, which is officially on the agenda for this week.
Utility service disconnections greatly impact the health and stability of low-income Nebraskans, particularly with the extreme temperatures Nebraska winters and summers bring. This important legislation would help more Nebraskans keep their power on and help restore service in the event that they are shut off. Read our factsheet to learn more.
