Focusing On Making Our Bills Better

This was the final week of committee hearings at the Legislature, and now that all bills have been heard, we can all focus on making our bills better and advancing them through the lawmaking process.

Although I had no bills to introduce in committees this week, my priority bill, LB490, came up for debate on General File early in the week. This bill is intended to increase keno revenue and designate a portion of the new revenue to help the horseracing industry. After a morning of debate and some pushback from my colleagues, it was decided to delay further debate and a vote until I could work out some issues with the bill. I have committed to working with the concerned parties to address these issues, and I hope to return to the table with a workable compromise next week.
