2021 Bill List & Cosponsored Legislation

Below you can find a brief overview of each of the bills I have introduced for 2021, as well as a few of the nearly 80 proposals I am co-sponsoring with my colleagues. The text of these bills is available on the Nebraska Legislature's website. This is a great tool to use to find information on hearing dates, the progress of a bill, and other relevant documents. Note that this year, written testimony will need to be submitted by noon the day before the bill's hearing, a change from 5 pm in previous years. Guidance on hearings may continue to change depending on COVID-19, but I will make sure that you hear of any changes and are able to testify on the bills that matter to you.

That same promise of commitment and dedication is what I pledge to bring, for you, to Lincoln in the Nebraska Legislature. I’ve been a working mother since my baby’s first day, and I promise to work hard to make it easier for all the other parents out there trying to do the same thing I’m doing—working to make a better world for the next generation.

I’m raising my daughter here, where she attends Dundee Elementary School. I frequently say that I love living in Nebraska, and that loving where I live, I feel a responsibility to make this a place where everybody in our great state has the opportunity to start a business, have a great job, or pursue their passion in whatever way they choose, regardless of their background, income, or zip code. I’d like to tell you more about why that matters to me.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day. I am grateful to be influenced and touched by mothers every day, directly through their compassion and strength and indirectly through the amazing children they nurture in the world. I am also thinking today of the mothers we have lost, and the mothers who themselves have gone through loss.

I believe that when unions in Nebraska succeed, all Nebraskans succeed.

Today I spoke at the Nebraska State AFL-CIO COPE Convention​, something I've been looking forward to for a long time. I believe that when unions in Nebraska succeed, all Nebraskans succeed. The right to organize and bargain collectively are critical to raising wages, strengthening the middle class, and securing the economic fairness every worker deserves, and all Nebraskan workers, families, and communities benefit from that.
