Legislative Week in Review, May 2-5 By Krista Vogel, Nebraska News Service

Senators advanced a bill May 5 to create the offense of assault with a bodily fluid against a public safety officer. Legislative Bill 226, introduced by Sen. Mike Gloor of Grand Island, would penalize any person who "knowingly and intentionally" hits an officer with a bodily fluid - including blood, saliva, urine, feces, seminal fluid, mucus and vomit. The offense would be a Class I misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine. In addition, any violator knowingly infected with hepatitis B or C, HIV or AIDS would be guilty of a Class 3A felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. An adopted amendment by Sen. Galen Hadley of Kearney added protection for employees of the Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Centers in Geneva and Kearney.
