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

I was happy to meet with my friend, Dr. Janet Guthmiller, Dean of UNMC's College of Dentistry, last night at a meeting of the UNMC Chancellor's Board of Counselors. Since assuming her position as Dean in 2014, Dr. Guthmiller has continuously worked to sustain the excellence and build on the strengths of the College. Under her tenure, external research funding has continued to increase, leading to a number of students and faculty receiving national awards and recognition for their outstanding research. Dr. Guthmiller has also helped the College achieve the #1 ranking nationally for graduates who return to practice in a rural setting, helping to improve the lives of citizens across our state.

Pam Morris-StumpWhat happened to the dental programs Creighton was supposed to set up across the state with the funding the legislature awarded them in 2015? Weren't they supposed to set up free dental clinics as a training program for dental students?

Historic Week! I am grateful to my LD28 constituents and my supporters who made it possible for me to attend the first convention where a WOMAN is the Presidential Nominee of a major party! I would never have been here were it not for each of you! Thank you! I am feeling sentimentally patriotic and thrilled to be an American woman in this time and this place!

William R. RiggsSenator -- Glad you were there for that historic convention -- In many ways this year's convention reminded me so much of the 1968 convention in Chicago, when I was part of the Nebraska delegation -- bitter sweet memories

State Senator Patty Pansing BrooksYes, I agree, $60 is way too little! My original bill was for an increase to $75 for the Personal Needs Allowance under Medicaid which is still too low, but if you look at the Legislative History, you will see we were fortunate to get the increase to $60. Unfortunately, in our State, any change to Medicaid, no matter how small, is a victory. Come!Stay informed! Help us fight for those in need!

Shawn ManionMost of the money goes to retirement homes(assisted living or nursing), medical facilities, and pharmacies. You don't see any of these places struggling to survive a month.

Shawn ManionI agree with Frances Scott! While what you did was ok, and a step in right direction, there is no way a human can buy everything they need for personal use on $60 a month. Most of them even have to pay for medicine out of that which medicaid won't pay for or cover.

Janet MaloneThank you for your efforts on behalf of those who need it most. Surely we all know that this is not enough--but, your efforts must certainly be applauded.
