Overview of 2017 Legislation

January 19th, 2017

The first 12 days of the 2017 legislative session have flown by, and I wanted to take a minute to provide you all an update from my office about all of the activity here at our Unicameral. 

As you know, the legislative session began on Wednesday, January 4th when I and 16 other freshman senators were sworn in to office. I was assigned to the Appropriations Committee, which is responsible for allocating funds to our state government. I also serve on two special committees: the State-Tribal Relations Committee and the Legislature’s Planning Committee, where I was elected to serve as Vice Chair.

With my mother, Lidia, and my wife, Lauren, after being sworn.

I have introduced 10 pieces of legislation that support families, education, and Nebraska businesses, protects our environment, and defends voter rights. Brief information about introduced legislation is below:

Keep checking back on my website for information about this legislation as our session moves forward.

I am also hosting two events in the district later this month and I hope to see many of you there.
