The Nebraska Legislature Friday began a special session designed to change the state's safe haven law. Two competing proposals were introduced. From the Capitol, Fred Knapp reports.

Todd Landry with the Department of Health and Human Services said an 11-year-old boy is returning to Florida and the custody of the Florida Department of Children and Families. The youth was left at Boys Town National Research on Wednesday. The four other out-of-state youth abandoned under the safe haven law have returned to their home states. 34 children have been abandoned under the law as of Friday.
