Week 1

January 14th, 2011

It has been a busy first week.  We are still introducing bills to the legislature.  This process will end on the tenth day or Wednesday, January 19th.   Committee hearings begin next week, every bill that has been introduced will have a hearing.  This process can be followed on the Legislature’s website.  You can also track individual bills there.

My time has been spent meeting people and learning the ins and outs of legislature. I would appreciate any and all comments that you may have for me and my staff.

My staff is made up of Lisa Johns, my legislative aide and Anne Duda, my administrative assistant.   Lisa joined me from Sen. Gay’s office, she has 18 years experience working in the Legislature.  Anne joined us from the Platte Institute and this is her first time working for the Legislature.  They provide the support that is needed to properly represent District 14.  It looks like the session is off to a good start.
