Tuition waiver for law enforcement officers passed

Nebraska law enforcement officers can apply for a tuition waiver under a bill approved by legislators March 24.

LB906, introduced by Sen. Brett Lindstrom of Omaha, authorizes a 30 percent tuition waiver for law enforcement officers who attend any state university, state college or community college in Nebraska.

To qualify, an officer must maintain satisfactory job performance, meet all admissions requirements of the postsecondary institution and pursue an associate or baccalaureate degree related to his or her career in law enforcement.

Senators voted 46-0 to pass the bill.
