I have been very busy in the first month of the 2018 legislative session. Here are some articles about what I have been working on so far. As always it is an honor to serve the 39th district.


LB 285:

“Legislative Bill 285, introduced by State Sen. Lou Ann Linehan of Omaha, would end the special consent requirement for HIV testing, while adding a requirement that pregnant women be tested for HIV.”                                                                                                                            –Martha Stoddard Omaha World Herald


LB 851:

“Introduced by Sen. Lou Ann Linehan of Elkhorn, the bill (LB851) would limit schools from paying superintendents and administrators a salary and benefits package “in excess of five times the compensation for a beginning teacher” of that school district.”                                               –Chris Dunker Lincoln Journal Star


LB 651 and LB 1052

“Sen. Patty Pansing Brooks of Lincoln and Sen. Lou Ann Linehan of Elkhorn — who are often on opposite sides on education debates in the philosophically split Education Committee — are cosponsoring a bill on dyslexia with two other senators and worked together to craft an amendment to Linehan’s hotly debated reading bill introduced last year.”                                     –Margaret Reist Lincoln Journal Star


Nebraska School Choice Week:

“I need your help,” Sen. Lou Ann Linehan of Elkhorn told rally attendees — most of them students — who filled the Warner Chamber and the balconies surrounding it. “We only have a one-house Legislature. The other house is you. We need you to reach out to senators to pass LB295 to provide benefits to people willing to donate to scholarships (for private-school tuition).” –Margaret Reist Lincoln Journal Star
