June 19, 2009, Lincoln –
When the Legislature convened in January, 36 of the 49 senators had
two or fewer years of experience as state policy makers. Many people
were concerned about how the first session of the One Hundred-First
Legislature would measure up. By May concerns were replaced by compliments.
In just 87 legislative days, 236 bills were passed. From my perspective some of the most important accomplishments of the session included:
Children’s behavioral health
services - Portions of five bills were combined to create the starting
point, from which Nebraska will address service gaps that were identified
during the special session last fall. An oversight committee will monitor
the implementation and effectiveness of the new and existing services;
increased funding will support the addition and expanded training of
more service professionals, especially in rural areas; service eligibility
for low income families will be increased; and a 24-hour, seven-day
a week hotline will provide families with immediate access to screening,
assessment and referral to community-based resources.
Anti-crime legislation –
LB 63 enhanced penalties for several firearms violations and violent
crimes committed with weapons. The bill significantly increased the
penalties for graffiti and criminal defacement, and prohibited domestic
violence offenders and subjects of protection orders from possessing
firearms. LB 63 also created the Office of Violence Prevention to work
with state and local law enforcement to implement programs to reduce
violence. Provisions of two other bills were amended into LB 63 before
its passage. One amendment required the state Department of Education
to develop a model dating violence policy, which school districts must
adopt by July 1, 2010. The other amendment ordered the Department of
Corrections to supervise any inmate, who is allowed to work for a school
district, ESU, community or state college, or a university.
Wind power legislation –
A bill was passed to make it easier to develop wind energy facilities
in Nebraska. LB 561 allowed public power districts to limit eminent
domain rights when contracting with a private wind-energy developer.
The bill also permitted community-based energy development (C-BED) projects
to participate by changing some of the eligibility requirements.
– Significant appropriations were approved for the Beatrice State
Developmental Center. Some of the funding was directed toward the further
expansion of community-based services for people with developmental
disabilities. Approximately $50 million was earmarked to replace federal
Medicaid funds that the state expects to lose because of on-going accreditation
problems at the Center. Another $15 million was aimed at providing services
for people who have been on a service waiting list for a long time.
Increased K-12 state aid funding
– We were able to increase state aid to schools by 11.3 percent for
the 2009-10 fiscal year and 5.1 percent for the 2010-11 fiscal year.
The current level of state aid was funded from several traditional sources,
but virtually all of the increased aid was financed with the Education
Stabilization portion of the federal economic stimulus funds.
