News from the Capitol From Senator Laura Ebke District 32

The pace continues to quicken in your Nebraska Legislature. Morning sessions, afternoon committee hearings, and countless meetings with constituents and interested parties.  We've had a number of bills moved out of committee, and have started taking those up on General File during the morning session, gradually moving things to Select File (the second reading).  Nebraska bills have to be voted on 3 times before moving to the Governor’s desk, so all bills are still up for discussion, in some form, yet.
