In Nebraska, if you commit a felony, you don't have the same rights as other citizens. You can't vote. You can't hold political office. You can’t serve on a jury. You can't hold certain occupational and professional licenses, and you can't own a firearm.

You also carry with you the label of “criminal” – which makes it difficult to find work and affordable housing.

Even if such limitations serve a purpose, should they last forever?
If someone has completed their sentence and has demonstratively TURNED THEIR LIFE around, aren't they deserving of a second chance? If they’ve chosen a path that is completely free from crime, shouldn't they be given the opportunity to have these rights restored?

It's Day 51 of your Nebraska Legislature, and the first day of all-day debate. The big question is what Legislature will we see today? The lawmaking body that worked thru some disagreements earlier this year or the, knock-around Legislature we saw Thurs?

Many of you have asked, so I want to lay out how the process works for testifying on a bill and how to contact the Legislature in the best way. Here are some steps for those who want to send in a letter or come testify on a bill in 2019! (And that's all of you, Nebraska.) #NELeg
1. Find bills at If you just want to browse what's coming, I suggest looking at senator's pages and clicking on "bills introduced." Then you'll see their 2019 bills and you can click to learn more. It's easy to go down a rabbit hole this way.
2. On the website, when you're looking at a bill, you can also see which committee that bill was referred to + when the hearing is (if it has been scheduled). THAT'S the committee you need to testify in front of. You can see all scheduled hearings on the "Calendar" page.
