LINCOLN — State lawmakers have put a $14.5 million price tag on reforming Nebraska's juvenile justice system.
Senators on Wednesday voted 35-0 to advance a bill that pays for an overhauled approach to treating children who violate the law. The $14.5 million represents new state money to be spent over the next two-year budget.
