Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning is proposing a legislative crackdown on stalkers, patent trolls who target businesses, a synthetic drug known as K2 and people who solicit child pornography.

Bruning identified the measures Tuesday as his legislative priorities.

One bill by Sen. Heath Mello is designed to hinder groups that acquire patents just to collect fees and threaten businesses with litigation.

Another measure by Sen. Burke Harr would make it illegal to solicit child pornography. Current state law only bans possession of child porn.

A third measure by Sen. Danielle Conrad would treat harassment and stalking as separate criminal offenses, and would allow stiffer penalties for prior violations.

Sen. Ken Schilz will propose a ban on a new form of K2, a synthetic drug that has killed youths in Nebraska.
