Red Cross encourages donations to keep robust blood supply as pandemic continues
Spike in COVID-19 cases has led to emergency plasma shortage
$5 Amazon.com Gift Cards offered to thank all blood donors who come to give

CITY, State (date) — Right now, the American Red Cross has an emergency shortage of convalescent plasma, a potentially lifesaving treatment for patients with COVID-19. The Red Cross has seen demand for convalescent plasma more than double over the last month as the number of coronavirus cases increases across the U.S. Convalescent plasma products are now being distributed faster than donations are coming in. Individuals who have fully recovered and received a verified COVID-19 diagnosis are urged to sign up to give convalescent plasma now by completing the donor eligibility form at RedCrossBlood.org/plasma4covid. Convalescent plasma is plasma that is collected from patients who have recovered from an infection and have antibodies that might help fight that infection – in this case, those who have fully recovered from COVID-19. With each donation, COVID-19 survivors have a unique ability to help up to three patients recover from the virus.

Blood donors needed to keep supply strong amid pandemic

Though this summer may feel different than summers past, one thing remains constant: The need for blood donations to help save lives. The Red Cross is urging healthy individuals to give blood to restock the shelves for patients battling disease and facing the unexpected.  Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, people across the country have stepped up to help by giving blood or platelets with the Red Cross. Blood donations from healthy individuals are just as essential now to meet patient needs, and those who gave this spring may be eligible to help again. Donation appointments can be made for the coming days and weeks by downloading the free Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.

As a thank-you for helping ensure a stable blood supply, those who come to give blood, platelets or plasma, including convalescent plasma, Aug. 1-Sept. 3 will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email, courtesy of Amazon.* Plus, come to give by Aug. 31 and automatically be entered for a chance to win a trip for four to Cedar Point or Knott’s Berry Farm, redeemable through the 2021 season!

Blood donation safety precautions

To protect the health and safety of Red Cross staff and donors, individuals who do not feel well or who believe they may be ill with COVID-19 should postpone their donation.

Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and additional precautions – including temperature checks, social distancing and face coverings for donors and staff – have been implemented to help protect the health of all those in attendance. Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive and are required to wear a face covering or mask while at the drive, in alignment with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention public guidance.

Upcoming blood donation opportunities:

A major goal for the CassLocal.com project, was to make small business support as convenient as possible. If you have a small business, you know that job one, is to make your businesses as simple, and convenient as possible to interact with.

The Corona $1200 checks, are starting to arrive this week. We know that some fortunate Nebraskans are not desperate and might consider helping struggling small businesses, Churches and Non-Profit organizations with a donation or better yet buying Gift Cards. We encourage restaurants, bars, basically any small businesses to get a Gift Card account from companies like Square. This is a convenient way for fortunate Nebraskan's to inject life saving cash into the business, in echange for Goods and Services later when the storm passes. None of this is possible, unless you add your business or Organization to www.CassLocal.com free. Any questions? TEXT VM/402-968-0821

Updates from the Legislature merged

Senator Rob Clements Column 8-14-2020

2020 Legislative Session Major Bills

The 2020 Legislative Session has ended after a four month delay due to COVID 19. Major bills were passed, including property tax relief, business incentives, an abortion ban, and a military pension exemption.

LB 1107, which I supported, is a new property tax credit. State funding starts at $125 million in 2020, increasing to $375 million by year 5. The credit is about 6% of your school property tax paid, increasing later to 18% and is a refundable income tax credit. State revenues must increase by 3.5% before the fund increases, but it is guaranteed to be $375 million by 2025. Then it increases with the growth of statewide property values. This is a good start, but we still need a better long-term solution. Still in effect is the current $275 million Property Tax Credit, which is deducted from your property tax bill, based on your property value.

The new business incentive plan, called ImagiNE Nebraska, replaces the Nebraska Advantage Act. It provides $25 million each of the first two years, $100 million years 3 and 4, and $150 million in year 5. It has much better reporting of taxes forgiven and its economic benefits.

The third part of LB 1107 includes funds up to $300 million if UNMC is selected for a federal biocontainment and research hospital. It is funded only after the new property tax fund reaches $375 million.

Another bill, LB 814, bans dismemberment abortion of live babies. I was a co-sponsor, and it passed with 33 votes. It survived an intense filibuster, and I am glad we now ban this inhumane second trimester procedure. I thank Sen. Suzanne Geist of Lincoln for her hard work in this effort. Only the doctor, not the woman would be charged with a violation.

Finally, LB 153 exempts 50% of military retirement pay from state income tax. It starts Jan. 1, 2022 so the $12 million cost can be budgeted. This will make Nebraska more competitive with our neighboring states who do not tax military pensions at all. It encourages retiring veterans to stay in Nebraska, get private jobs, buy houses, and contribute to our economy. I was glad to be a co-sponsor and to help pass it this session.

Feel free to contact me or my staff for assistance, information, or questions on issues. You may reach me at: Senator Rob Clements, State Capitol Rm 812, Lincoln, NE 68509, Phone 402­471­2613, or email: rclements@leg.ne.gov.
