I will take a stand and work hard for the issues that are important to all of us. I will fight for our children, our seniors, our jobs, our economy, our parks, our equity issues, our health, our schools and our safety–for all Nebraskans!

Patty Pansing Brooks

Nebraska State Senator

Today was my third attempt in front of Appropriations to try to allocate funds to help mitigate the damage that will be caused by the Emerald Ash Borer here in Nebraska.

I remain hopeful the Appropriations Committee will recognize the grave threat these invasive insects pose to the beauty of our state, and support LB 71 in order to protect our tree canopy for future generations.

Kama OgdenMy new street is lined with Ash trees four are city trees one's mine. I hope it works this time! The city will have to take the trees down that are theirs as it will be a liability issue.

Lost in the shuffle of all the newsworthy bills this week, were the various domestic violence bills introduced by Senator Kate Bolz, State Senator Adam Morfeld, and me. My bill, LB 191, would allow victims of domestic violence to renew their protection orders without a gap in coverage.
Senator Bolz and Senator Morfeld's bills relate to domestic violence and protection orders.

It is heartening to be able to work with and support my colleagues who are advocating for such positive change here in Nebraska.

I was incredibly proud to stand with my friend and colleague, State Senator Adam Morfeld, and so many other fabulous Nebraskans today to advocate for LB 173 at the Stand Up & Speak Out Rally. This bill prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. No one should be punished solely because of who they are or who they love. ... See MoreSee Less
