Voter ID, cigar shops, motorcycle helmet repeal among notable bills introduced

LINCOLN--Here is a summary of notable bills introduced in the first three days of the 2015 legislative session.

LLB111, introduced by Sen. Tyson Larson of O'Neill, would require voters to show a "government-issued photographic identification" at the polls. The bill would provide free state voter ID cards to indigents.

LB10, introduced by Sen. Beau McCoy of Omaha, would award all of Nebraska's electoral votes in presidential elections to the statewide winner rather than splitting votes by congressional districts.
