Nebraska voters placed the right to hunt and fish in the state constitution and expanded impeachable offenses, but rejected two legislative issues on the ballot Tuesday.
Constitutional Amendment #1, which would make offenses, committed during a campaign impeachable offense, won easily. Final unofficial results released by the Secretary of State’s office show that 589,306 votes were cast in favor, or just over 83%, with 120,579 cast against the amendment.
More than 76% of the voters approved making hunting and fishing a constitutional right, Constitutional Amendment #2. The final tally: 541,315 (76.69%) to 164,531 (23.31%).
Voters didn’t look favorably on two issues related to the Unicameral.
Constitutional Amendment #3 would have allowed legislators to serve three consecutive four-year terms rather than the current two. It lost 468,210 to 255,675; 64.48% to 35.32%.
Constitutional Amendment #4 would have raised legislative pay. It lost 498,126 to 230,419; 68.37% to 31.63%
