Welcome to my official Senator’s Page. I am pleased to represent the 4th District and look forward to visiting with you via this newsletter.

On this seventh day of the 90-day session we are spending mornings on the legislative floor while introducing bills. The afternoons are not yet hearing days but we are all busy with meetings to acquaint us with various issues.

I have been appointed to the Appropriations Committee and yesterday was chosen to be vice-chair.  I will not have a second or third committee assignment as Appropriations meets five days per week. This important committee crafts a budget to present to the entire body, which we are constitutionally required to do.

Please contact me at my Capitol office via several means. You may write to Senator Robert Hilkemann, District 4, PO Box 94604, Lincoln, NE 68509-4604; you may call me at 402-471-2621; or email at

My two staff members are experienced women who have worked for several senators. Kate Wolfe is my administrative assistant. She will be first to answer the phone or greet you in person. Nanette Hessee is my legislative aide. She works with legislation and other state matters. They are both available to assist you.

 My next post will tell you about bills I am introducing this session.
