Now that the session has started and bills are flying though our halls at breakneck speed it’s time to reach out and keep you informed of what’s happening here, and, to make sure you never forget that my purpose here in the Legislature is to serve your interests.
With that said, I’d like to inform you of a few developments that I hope you will find useful.
Committee Information: I have been elected Chairman of the Banking, Commerce, and Insurance Committee and will also serve as Vice Chairman of the Nebraska Retirement Systems Committee and as a member of the Revenue Committee.
Our office has moved: We have been relocated to the Banking, Commerce and Insurance Committee office in room 1401 near the north entrance of the capitol. So if you ever need to talk to me, that’s where I’ll be. You can click on this map to view a link of the legislature’s floor plan if you need further assistance.
Helpful hints: When contacting the office, please state the bill number or issue you’re concerned with and remember to add your name, address and contact information to give us the information we need to engage with you and address your concerns.
Tracking votes in real time: For those of you paying close attention to the happenings in the Unicameral, there has been a development which I hope you will find useful. You will now be able to track senators’ votes on particular bills in close to real time.
The 105th Session of the Legislature has only just begun, and already it’s shaping up to be the eventful session many outside observers predicted that it would be. Next week will see the beginning of hearings, general file debate and the end of bill introduction, so things will only speed up from here.
No matter what’s going on in the legislature though, I will never forget the reason I am here, and that is to represent the people of District 18 and provide the inspired leadership Nebraska needs to defend our strongly held principles and ensure the future of our state.
