Default Legality of owning a hedgehog

I am hoping someone out there can assist me. I have always tried to follow the breeder code of ethics to the best of my abilities but I have come across a stumbling block. Can someone tell me where I can obtain a concrete-set in stone list of where (in the USA) it is illegal to own hedgehogs? I am here in Lincoln Nebraska and it is not illegal here. I am about 45 minutes away from Omaha Nebraska where I believe it is illegal. I have tried contacting Omaha Animal Control, Nebraska Parks and Games Commission and the Nebraska Animal Shelter to see if any of them can verify this and get me something in writing to no avail. I had always thought it was illegal and then a couple months ago someone told me that it wasn't illegal if you got a permit so now I don't know. I often get calls from Omaha and have informed them that I am unable to sell to them since it is illegal but it would be nice to have documentation to back it up.
Thanks in advance,

I was understanding Nebraska was a legal state so is it just the individual towns or counties with in the state that made the rule?

From everything I have seen it just pertains to Omaha. I'm not sure if it is the city ordinance but I am not able to get documentation.
