Nebraska: Senator puts forward bill to eliminate recalls

State Senator Curt Friesen (R) has proposed a bill to eliminate recall elections following the removal of Hamilton Commissioner Gregg Kremer this week.

The article notes that Nebraska has had at least 45 recalls since 2008 -- a number I'll have to check myself.

There have been other attempts to change recall laws in other states, though they rarely succeed. I don't know of a single case where recall laws were dropped entirely. Michigan changed its recall in 2012, though it is still a political recall state. Las Cruces, New Mexico and College Station, Texas both moved from political recall to judicial recall/malfeasance standard requirements.
