From abolishing the social security tax and protecting children, to protecting our veteran’s benefits and tackling a $900 million budget shortfall there has been plenty to keep the legislature on its toes this week in committees but we’re still just getting started.
Tuesday evening, my fellow Senators on the Nebraska Retirement Systems Committee and I were here past 8 pm to conduct a hearing regarding retirement for our police and firemen. The next night, my colleagues and I on the Revenue Committee were here just as late to hear bills presented on tax reform for the state, and I know other committees are here past dark on a daily basis. I can tell you that we are listening to you and are committed to putting in long hours to best serve you. Don’t hesitate to reach out to my office if you need information or have a concern.
