Nebraska Revised Statute 76-557

- R.S.1943, (1981), § 76-530;
- Laws 1985, LB 47, § 27.
"Preparing written reports of title to real property" constitutes the "business of abstracting" for purposes of the Abstracters Act only when done in exchange for a fee or other valuable consideration. So construed, the Abstracters Act is not unconstitutionally overbroad on its face. State v. Rabourn, 269 Neb. 499, 693 N.W.2d 291 (2005).
