April 24, 2009, Lincoln—
In addition to the nine bills I personally introduced this year, I added
my name as co-introducer to 15 other bills. By “signing-on” to a
bill that is introduced by another senator, a co-introducer makes it
known that he or she supports the bill. Sometimes the co-introducer
initiates the gesture of adding his or her name to the bill. In other
instances the bill’s primary introducer seeks support from co-introducers
to demonstrate the bill’s strength, even before it has a public hearing
or is scheduled for floor debate. One of the bills I co-introduced this
year was LB 489 by Senator Kate Sullivan. This bill would adopt the
Area Health Education Centers Act. LB 489 is Senator Sullivan’s 2009
priority bill. It was advanced this week to the final round of debate.
The Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) program was developed by Congress in 1971 to recruit, train and retain a health care workforce to address the needs of underserved populations. The AHEC program, with more than 200 Centers, operates in almost every state. The strength of the program is its ability to creatively adapt national initiatives to address local or regional health care issues. In each state that is served, federal funding flows through medical schools to the individual AHECs.
The state of Nebraska is served by five Centers, which are 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organizations governed by local boards of directors. The Centers in Nebraska were created between 2001 and 2005. In Legislative District 2, Sarpy County is served by the Omaha Urban AHEC, and the Southeast Nebraska AHEC covers Cass and Otoe Counties. Nebraska’s AHECs have cooperative agreements with the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
LB 489 would recognize Area Health Education Centers in statute as a resource for connecting Nebraska students to health careers, health professionals to communities and communities to better health. In this state there are significant gaps between the health care workforce demand and the actual supply of providers, especially in underserved and rural areas. The current situation is becoming more acute, because we have an aging workforce, high turnover, low pay and few advancement opportunities.
To this point the Area Health Education Centers have been funded through local, private and federal sources. Federal monies account for the largest percentage of the funding, but the payments arrive on a staggered schedule based on when the Centers were started. Under the current funding plan, all of the AHECs must complete the initial six year federal funding cycle before any of the Centers would be eligible to receive additional federal funding. LB 489 would provide enough state funding to sustain all of the AHECs until federal funding can be renewed.
The Legislature’s Health
and Human Services Committee, on which I serve, offered an amendment
to LB 489 to require the AHECs to conduct annual evaluations, and report
the findings to the governor and the Legislature. The bill will sunset
at the end of the 2013-2014 fiscal year. This target date will enable
the Health and Human Services and Appropriations Committees to make
sound recommendations about continued funding for the AHECs.
The Area Health Education Centers
play a vital role in enhancing access to quality health care in underserved
and rural areas of our state. I am pleased to support LB 489 and the
work that is performed by the dedicated AHEC staff and directors.
I appreciate the opportunity you have given me to represent District 2 in the Nebraska Legislature.

OPPD Teams With Cass County Communities on Trees
Cass County community groups and organizations are among the winners of the Omaha Public Power District’s tree planting project sponsorships. Cass County winners are the Weeping Water 4-H Whiz Kids and the Beaver Lake Association. OPPD annually sponsors a limited number of projects throughout the district’s 13-county service territory as part of its Tree Promotion Program.
The District has spent about a million dollars on the program since its inception in 1990 and finds it helps educate on how trees and power lines can co-exist . The projects must promote energy efficiency and/or beautification, must be located on public property and cannot exceed $2,500.
The Arbor Day Foundation has recognized OPPD as a Tree Line USA utility. That program promotes efforts to combine reliable electric service with healthy trees in our cities and villages.
At a special ceremony marking Arbor Day today, OPPD representatives handed recipients certificates noting the award of their grants.

Allan Jacobs and Barrett Felker have amazed and amused audiences around the world. The Gizmo Guys have strutted their stuff in places as diverse as Saudi Arabia and Japan and have taught juggling at the renowned French and Canadian National Circus Schools. But, what makes their act so appealing is their combination of technique and infectious humor. The Gizmo Guys' rapid-fire act inspires sidesplitting laughter in audience members of all ages.
The Gizmo Guys are based out of New York City, but have visited Nebraska several times in the past. Most recently they performed at Lincoln's Lied Center for the Performing Arts in 2007 and treated a sell-out crowd to their special brand of family entertainment.
The Gizmo Guys will be performing at the Lofte on Friday, May 8th at 7:00pm. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for children ages 12 and under. Their show generally runs about an hour.
