June 7, 2013 Legislative Update
Dear Residents of the 40th District,
On Wednesday, June 5, the first session of the 103rd Legislature came to a close. There were 665 bills introduced, of which 214 were passed. We debated many important issues, ranging from the reformation of the juvenile justice system, to the recalculation of K-12 education funding, to the restructuring Nebraska’s tax code, among others. I was fortunate to sit on the Appropriations Committee and helped put together the state’s budget for the next two years. I was also able to pass LB59 into law, which will give crop insurance agents the ability to work more with their family and those close to them.
The time between now and next session allows my staff and I do to research into issues facing District 40 and Nebraska that can be solved with legislation. Specifically, I proposed two interim studies to examine changing the age of majority in Nebraska to eighteen years of age, and to evaluate the state’s current statutes relating to drainage by neighboring landowners. If you have any suggestions for future legislation, please contact my office in the upcoming months at 402-471-2801 or at email@example.com. I appreciate hearing from my constituents on issues that are important to them and want to ensure that your questions and concerns are addressed.
Senator Tyson Larson
