While the Second Session of the One-Hundred and Sixth Legislature was moving at a steady pace, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has virtually ground everything to a halt. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended limiting gatherings to 10 or fewer people. Given the fact the Legislature has 49 members, it has been determined the session should be postponed for the time being.
Governor Pete Ricketts has issued guidelines on what part you can play in slowing the spread of this coronavirus and what you should do if you suspect you have been exposed. I highly encourage you to view these guidelines and to continue to monitor the information posted on the Governor’s website: www.Governor.Nebraska.gov. The website also includes links to the CDC’s COVID-19 page.
Please make sure any information you are accessing comes from a reputable source. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous operations that will take advantage of this outbreak. Avoid opening unsolicited emails and any attachments in particular.

Though the Legislature’s session is “recessed” for now, our offices will continue to operate to serve the citizens of Nebraska. My emails will be checked regularly and the office phones monitored during this unprecedented and ever-evolving crisis.
