Late night debate started this past week. We spent two days debating the budget bills and we still have one more budget bill left to debate.

My bill, LB1259, which would change provisions relating to the issuance of new license plates and license plate fees was amended into the Transportation and Telecommunications priority bill. Just like everything else, the inputs for making license plates have increased dramatically and the Legislature needs to address this issue.

My bill, LB714, will reallocate funds that the DMV receives from five-year documents such as driver’s licenses and state identification cards, was also amended into the Transportation and Telecommunications priority bill. The reallocated funds will go to create a streamlined service center in Lancaster County. The current location has long wait times and it can be very frustrating for citizens to do business at that location. Citizens will be able to take their photo and pay for their 5-year documents at the same time. So they will no longer have go to different counters and stand in multiple lines once this is completed

My bill, LB1184, I introduced at the request of the Attorney General was passed on the first round of debate. LB1184 clarifies that a state trooper or employee of the state patrol could request a private attorney if they are called before a grand jury. It also makes clear the duties of the State Patrol legal counsel.

As always, feel free to contact my office. My office phone number is 402-471-2731 and my email is
