Return to Session
July 19th, 2020

Tomorrow, my colleagues and I will return to Lincoln to finish the remainder of the session. While this year has been extremely challenging for me and my family, my promise to fight for a fair, just, prosperous Nebraska is stronger than ever. Things will inevitably be different at the State Capitol building, but my commitment to my community is unwavering.
My bill, LB1148, is up tomorrow, which is part of a package of legislation related to juvenile justice and reforms our Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Centers (YRTC). I will also continue to work towards getting my priority bill, LB 1089, to the floor for debate, which would require all high school students to complete the FAFSA. I have a few other bills that I’ll be focusing on as well – stay tuned for more info on those.

Every day I am honored to represent District 7 in the Nebraska Legislature. I could not be more proud to work for a community that values inclusivity, strength, and diversity. I will fight every day to promote District 7 values to make Nebraska an even better place to call home for everyone. As always, please feel free to reach out to me or my office at, or any social media. My staff and I are willing and eager to help.
