Jacobson at the Legislature: Striving to keep housing affordable

Sen. Mike Groene - May. 22, 2022

As Wayne Gretzky famously said, “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.” Lawmakers often have two tasks: address the problems before us now, and attempt to avoid the problems of tomorrow. One of the greatest challenges facing District 42 and our larger region is the lack of […]

Brewer in the Legislature: Fears of food shortages

Sen. Tom Brewer -

In the six years I have been a Nebraska state senator, I have never received so many calls and messages from citizens concerned about things that only the federal government can address. I think people go home after work and turn on the news and see yet another example of federal government incompetence causing problems. […]

Erdman at the Legislature: Unspeakable courage

Sen. Steve Erdman -

As Americans we never tire of sharing stories of fearless bravery that have provided us with freedom and protected our liberties for almost 250 years, especially against foreign oppressors.  As we enter the Memorial Day weekend, one of those stories I have read of valiant bravery has finally come to a peaceful end. It is the […]

Jacobson at the Legislature: Helping in times of disaster

Sen. Mike Jacobson - May. 14, 2022

As a life-long farmer, I tend to mark the passing of time in growing seasons. Spring is typically a time for new beginnings, but in the past few years it has been a time of adversity for many Nebraskans. In 2019, our state saw historic flooding that wiped out many a family home and crippled […]

Erdman at the Legislature: Divisive campaign for governor

Sen. Steve Erdman - May. 13, 2022

This year’s primary election will likely go down in history as one of Nebraska’s nastiest primary elections ever, especially in regards to the gubernatorial race. Now that the election is over, Republican party leaders are especially facing the very difficult task of trying to unify the party before the general election comes later this fall. […]

Brewer at the Legislature: Nursing home crisis

Sen. Tom Brewer -

The nursing home situation in rural Nebraska is facing some very serious challenges. Last year, there were at least six nursing homes that closed in rural Nebraska. We lost the nursing home in Valentine and the facilities in Ainsworth and Crawford are in tough shape. Skilled nursing facilities across the state face similar challenges. Back […]

Brewer at the Legislature: Return dignity to abortion debate

Sen. Tom Brewer - May. 11, 2022

Abortion is an important issue for a clear majority of Nebraskans. The recent leak of a Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) draft opinion concerning an abortion case before the court is shocking. My lawyer friends tell me something like this is unprecedented in history, and represents a huge betrayal of the integrity of […]
