Priority Legislation Update
February 24th, 2016

In Nebraska, each senator may select one bill to receive a priority designation, which generally moves the bill ahead of others in debate.  In order to develop a workforce that can compete in the global economy, it’s important to make smart decisions that maximize the efficiency of our educational investments.  With this in mind, I am excited about my priority designation for the 2016 session, LB371, which was originally introduced by Senator Kate Sullivan.  

LB371 creates a holistic approach to education by establishing the Nebraska Council for Educational Success, a twenty-one member council that will make recommendations to the legislature and educational governing bodies with the goal of strengthening collaboration of publicly funded programs from early childhood through post-secondary education.  

By creating a more cohesive plan that focuses on student success and giving the Nebraska Council for Education Success the tools to monitor progress, we can ensure that Nebraskans’ tax dollars are being well spent.  

If you have thoughts on this bill, or others that are being considered by the legislature, please do not hesitate to call my office at (402) 471-2734, or email me at
