Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts fields questions from Lincoln High students during an assembly for Law Day on May 1, 2015. Ricketts was asked about his opinion on same-sex marriage and the rights of businesses to refuse service to gay couples.

Governor Pete Ricketts, Attorney General Doug Peterson, and Chief Justice Mike Heavican spoke to a full house in the Ted Sorensen Theatre this morning as part of a celebration of Law Day in Nebraska and the 200th Anniversary of the Magna Carta.

The speakers fielded a number of tough questions, and many students were troubled by some of the answers. If you would like to share your thoughts about those answers, we’d like to hear from you.

    Kudos to the Lincoln High students for putting our elected officials to the test today. You showed the politicians of our state that there is a generation coming of age to vote that has a voice and an opinion on matters of importance.
