Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are all staying warm while preparing for this upcoming holiday season and that these next few weeks are filled with joy and family. I would like to give a little update on my legislative work as the year comes to a close. I will be spending more time in Lincoln as I prepare to start my second term serving the people of the 44th District. I would like to thank you all for trusting me and voting for me to serve you once again.

I have been spending some time getting to know the newly elected class of senators this month. They have been around the capitol for orientation and to learn how the legislative process works in our state. It has been a great opportunity getting to know some of the new minds that will be joining me and my colleagues this year. I hope to continue to build professional relationships with all of the new senators leading up to this year’s session.

January 9, 2019, is when the 106th Nebraska Legislature will convene its first session. I will continue to work on some important legislation for the state and especially for my constituents in District 44. I have been drafting legislation over the past few months and am looking forward to getting things done this year.

Next week on November 30th, the Natural Resources Committee will be holding another interim study hearing. This hearing was requested by Senator Justin Wayne of Omaha and will be held in Omaha. The hearing will discuss LR464 which was introduced to review public power.

Last week I announced to my colleagues my intention to run for reelection as Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee. Since joining the legislature in 2015 I have been a member of this committee and served the last two years as chairman. I hope to continue to serve as chair of this important committee.

I always enjoy hearing from the Nebraskans I represent. Please feel free to contact my office with any questions or concerns that you might have. My email address is and my phone number is (402) 471-2805.
