When an abandoned vehicle is towed, the towing company must notify any lienholder on the title, as well as the owner, within 15 business days. LB616, sponsored by Venango Sen. Dan Hughes, requires the law enforcement agency with jurisdiction also to follow the notification requirements.

The bill also increases the value of an abandoned vehicle from $250 to $500.

Senators voted 45-0 to pass LB616.
