From: State Sen. Rob Clements

The 2019 Legislative Session has begun, and state senators have finished introducing new bills. I would like to address a few of the issues and mention some legislation I have introduced. First, I would like to thank the voters of Legislative District 2 for trusting me to represent them in the Unicameral. It is an honor and a privilege.

The preliminary work of electing leadership and permanent rules has been completed. We came up three votes short of eliminating secret ballots in our rules for electing leadership positions. I voted to end voting for leadership by secret ballot. I believe voters should be able to know who their senator supports for leaders who will control much of the legislative process.

I am on the Appropriations Committee again and will continue to work hard to control state spending and replenish our cash reserve. Right now, Nebraska has a small surplus, but there are many competing interest for spending it, including property tax relief and Medicaid expansion.

The cost of Medicaid expansion will begin July 1, 2020, the second year of our two-year budget, and is currently estimated at $48 million per year. There are several property tax relief bills, and I am evaluating them and waiting to see which ones come out of committee.

I signed onto Sen. Brewer’s bill, LB 153, to increase income tax deductions for military retirees by exempting 50 percent of military retirement income. This will help to keep more of Nebraska’s military retirees from leaving our state and make us a more tax friendly state.

This session I have introduced six bills. LB 452 would move Cass County from Planning and Development Region 6 to Region 8. This would move Cass from the Southeast Nebraska Development District (SENDD) to the Metropolitan Area Planning Agency. This year we’ve added language to provide a process by which counties may change regions in the future.

Next time I will address other major proposals before the Legislature and touch on some of the other bills I have introduced.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff for information on issues or if I may be of assistance. Please reach me at: Senator Rob Clements, State Capitol Rm 812, Lincoln, NE 68509 (402­471­2613), or at my email: This email address is being protected from spambots.

How to donate blood

Simply download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

Blood and platelet donors can save time at their next donation by using RapidPass® to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, before arriving at the blood drive. To get started, follow the instructions at RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPassor use the Blood Donor App.
