LINCOLN — Elderly and disabled Nebraskans who cannot manage their own affairs would get help from the state under a bill passed by the Legislature on Thursday.
Legislative Bill 920 would set up a system of publicly funded guardians to handle decision-making for people whom the courts determine are not able to make decisions on their own. It passed on a 44-0 vote.
