Dear Residents of the 40th District,
On Monday, I introduced LB168 to the Banking, Commerce, and Insurance Committee. LB168 would allow limited liability companies the opportunity to subdivide and create series limited liability companies within their overall business structure. The Committee had a lot of good questions about series LLCs and why Nebraska should allow for this kind of business model. I believe that our state needs to be proactive about generating business and economic opportunities and I hope that the Committee advances this bill to the floor for further debate.
The Legislature held makeup hearings on Tuesday for those hearings that were cancelled due to the snowstorm. I introduced LB598 to the Natural Resources Committee, which would raise the capacity limits for those systems that can participate in Nebraska’s net metering program. I was also fortunate to meet with a social studies class from Hartington Public Schools on Tuesday and was impressed with the questions they asked and the overall discussion we had about state and national issues.
Next Wednesday I will be introducing LB204 to the Judiciary Committee. LB204 creates stricter requirements for reporting cases of animal abuse. Any observed incident of animal mistreatment, cruelty, or neglect would have to be reported within 24 hours of witnessing the abuse. The bill also creates penalties for individuals who try and gain employment at an animal facility with the intent to disrupt the operations of that facility. The purpose of this bill is to prevent applicants from misrepresenting themselves to get jobs that would allow them to cause economic harm to an animal facility’s operations. I believe this is a very important bill and I look forward to its hearing next week.
Another one of my bills, LB597, was voted out of the Agriculture Committee and will move to the floor for further debate. LB597 would change some of the statutes governing county agricultural societies, allowing county agricultural societies to purchase equipment and lease their property. I look forward to introducing this bill on the floor and am optimistic about its progress.
I enjoy hearing your comments or feedback on issues that are important to the people of Legislative District 40. Please feel welcome to call, write, or visit the office that is here to represent and serve you at (402) 471-2801 or a firstname.lastname@example.org.
