Working together in 2018

Happy New Year, fellow Nebraskans! With the start of a new year, the Unicameral Legislature convenes in January to work on priorities Nebraskans care about. In good times and in bad, Nebraskans work together to get things done and move our state forward. When we see a need, we go out and meet that need. Over the years, many of your State Senators and I have worked together on your priorities. You don’t have to look any further than the work we did together in the 2017 session to see the power of working together. The bills we worked on are already making Nebraska an even better place to live, work, and raise a family.

Senator John Murante of Gretna and I partnered on a successful initiative to merge the Division of Veterans’ Homes with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA). Previously, the Division of Veterans’ Homes had been housed in the Department of Health and Human Services. Nebraska is home to 133,000 veterans. These veterans have risked it all to serve their state and country. By merging Veterans’ Homes with the DVA, we’ve created a more customer-friendly, one-stop-shop for veterans’ services in Nebraska.
