Standing Bear sculpture

April 4th, 2017

Sen. Baker and sculptor Ben Victor are pictured with a clay model of the 11 foot depiction of Ponca Chief Standing Bear, a champion of human rights and freedom in Nebraska. Victor is the artist in residence at Boise State University in Idaho. The clay model will be cast into bronze at a foundry in Lander, Wyoming before being placed at a permanent location on Centennial Mall in Lincoln. Sen. Baker is a member of the Legislature’s Tribal Relations Committee.

LB 122, which provides for family members to petition for visitation, was advanced to the second round of debate today. The bill was introduced by Senator Pansing Brooks, and I made it my priority bill to help insure passage this year.  Pictured with me, Senator Pansing Brooks and her friend Genenne Didier, whose experiences inspired the legislation.

The State Tribal Relations committee of the Legislature met on Tuesday.  This is Senator Baker’s first year on the committee. Pictured left to right: Senators Lindstrom, Albrecht, Brewer; Judi gaiashkibos, Executive Director of the Nebraska Commission on Indian Affairs; Senators Vargas, Baker and Quick. Not pictured Sen. Brasch.

Students in the high school government/civics classes at Norris toured the Capitol on Monday the 20th, met with Senator Baker and  heard from various state officials. They also listened to Norris alum and current UNL student Nick Devine about getting involved with government.

Sen. Baker invites students to youth legislature

High school students are invited to take on the role of state senators at the Unicameral Youth Legislature June 11-14. At the State Capitol, student senators will sponsor bills, conduct committee hearings, debate legislation and discover the unique process of the nation’s only unicameral.

The Unicameral Youth Legislature gives behind-the-scenes access to students who have an interest in public office, government, politics, law, public policy, debate or public speaking. Students will learn about the inner workings of the Legislature directly from senators and staff.

Registrants are encouraged to apply for a Greg Adams Civic Scholarship award, which covers the full cost of admission. Applicants must submit a short essay. Other $100 scholarships are also available.

The Office of the Clerk of the Nebraska Legislature coordinates the Unicameral Youth Legislature. The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Extension 4-H Youth Development Office coordinates housing and recreational activities as part of the Big Red Summer Camps program.

To learn more about the program, go to www.NebraskaLegislature.gov/uyl or call (402) 471-2788. The deadline for registration is May 15.
