The last week of February was the home stretch for committee hearings for the first session of the 107th Nebraska Legislature. Speakers Mike Hilgers was preparing the senators for full floor debate as we approached the month of March. I am very appreciative of the measures he has taken as Speaker of the Legislature to ensure that we are all keeping safe and sensible during these tumultuous times.

This week, we finished up our hearings in both the Agriculture and Health and Human Services Committees. We will be hearing no further introduced bills as we will vote in committee to see which bills will continue to the floor for full debate. Monday was the last day for Business and Labor Committee to meet and hear final testimony on the last few bills left before the committee votes to send them to the floor. It has been a great honor to serve as the Chairman of the Business and Labor Committee. I look forward to floor debate and how I can continue to serve my district better each day.

My bill, LB 436, has been voted out of the Health and Human Services Committee unanimously and will go to the floor. I greatly appreciate the work they have done and I’m glad we were able to advance this bill. This bill will give a section of our healthcare workers, athletic trainers, a broader scope of practice to those who can and will benefit from their training and experience.

Additionally, I want to thank all of my constituents from District 16. I have received so many emails covering so many issues both federally and locally. I always encourage any constituent to reach out to my office as we love to be of assistance to the amazing people of Washington, Burt, and Cumming Counties.
