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 safetyโ€“for all Nebraskans!

Patty Pansing Brooks

Nebraska State Senator

Yesterday, the Governor signed LB512, which was amended to include my bill LB123 which assures that students attending for-profit post secondary institutions will now be better protected if those institutions close.

Students who turn to for-profit schools with the promise of a good education should have every opportunity to recover lost tuition and obtain their academic records in order to help them further their educational pursuits and careers. This bill ensures those student protections.

State Senator Patty Pansing Brooks added 5 new photos.

I traveled to #Whiteclay this weekend with Senator Tom Brewer to hold listening sessions and meet with individuals and organizations who are committed to #HealWhiteclay.

I am truly amazed by the drastic changes I have seen in this region in the past year. Buildings that were havens for human trafficking have been torn down. The once litter-filled streets are clean and empty. Most importantly, the century long influx of liquor that has long crippled the Lakota people has been stemmed.

We are on the verge of making additional historic change here in Whiteclay, and I am truly blessed to be able to play a role in this process. The outpouring of ideas, support, and dedicated individuals has been overwhelming, and I am greatly looking forward to working together moving forward in this endeavor.

Nancy CarlsonThank you, Senator Pansing Brooks! When several of us met with you (unannounced and without an appt.) a little over a year ago, you were open, willing and courageous to tackle this. We are forever grateful!
