LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts is personally lobbying senators to try to stop them from overriding his veto of a bill that would allow certain immigrants to get professional licenses.
One lawmaker said Wednesday that the governor called him in hopes of swaying his vote, but failed to persuade him. Sen. Les Seiler of Hastings says in an open letter to Ricketts that he will continue to support the legislation.
