The first three days of the 107th Legislature Second Session, my final legislative session, are completed. The speaker of the legislature, Sen. Mike Hilgers, has laid out the framework for the weeks and days to come as we undertake numerous important issues. Just one of our imperatives is to plan and prioritize the spending of the federal stimulus dollars provided to Nebraska through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
I have introduced four bills so far. LB 721 provides funding for the University of Nebraska to develop a medical school at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. This was a project that was important to me as a candidate in 2013 and I’m honored to be carrying the legislation along with Senators John Lowe, John Stinner, and Mark Kolterman as co-introducers.
LB 722 would appropriate funds for a grant to assist with lead-based paint abatement to cities.
LB 812 would allow for pharmacy technicians to administer vaccine injections. Vaccines are safe and effective and with training, pharmacy technicians will be a vital asset to needed health care delivery access.
LB 813 is an appropriations bill that would allow for the transfer of funds to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission for development and improvement along the designated national rail-trail route through the State of Nebraska.
Senators have until the 10th Legislative Day, January 20th, to introduce legislation. My office is busy drafting additional measures that I look forward to carrying.
As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me regarding any issues that come before the legislature. It’s hard to believe this will be my final year but I will be forever grateful for the opportunity I have had to represent District 4.
Thank you for visiting my website. It is an honor to represent the people of the 4th legislative district in the Nebraska Unicameral Legislature.
You’ll find my contact information on the right side of this page, as well as a list of the bills I’ve introduced this session and the committees on which I serve. Please feel free to contact me and my staff about proposed legislation or any other issues you would like to address.
Sen. Robert Hilkemann
