Nebraska Veterans’ Legislative Day

During a ceremony that took place in the Warner Chamber on Friday, I was honored to speak before a group of distinguished Nebraska Veterans. Along with other colleagues I shared Legislation I have introduced that will lighten the burdens for our veterans and their families. It is always a humbling experience to be among such bravery. In addition, Governor Ricketts officially signed the paperwork renaming a portion of Nebraska Highway 20 as the “Nebraska Medal of Honor Highway,” a project I was proud to support.
