Wednesday was the last day of the 2nd session of the 107th Legislature. Normally, we would have time to debate every Senator, Committee and Speaker priority bill. This 60-day session was different. We were not able to debate every priority bill due to the fact that we had so many filibusters. We spent over 45 hours debating just the three budget bills.
We were still able to accomplish many great things this session. We were able to help many communities and Nebraskans in need with the ARPA funding we received from the Federal Government, passed the largest tax relief bill since I have been in office and many other bills that will help Nebraskans.
I will miss my colleagues that are term-limited or have chosen not to run for re-election, but I am looking forward to working with many new senators next year.
This interim, I will be working on two major items for the next session. I will be working on a corrections reform plan and I will be learning more about the mental health issues in the state and trying to find a way to assist with this issue.
