LINCOLN, Neb. – Last Wednesday was the first day home for members of the Nebraska legislature.

Senators were eager to return to the state capital to begin a new legislative session.

But a larger subject seems to be at the center of concerns according to Senator Steve Halloran.

“It’s a short session, a 60 day session. We’re going to deal with the American Rescue Plan Act funds,” he said. “20-30 days of that 60-day session could be spent in pure ownership and deciding where that money is going.”

Senator Halloran mentioned a few different bills that will be introduced by members of the Legislative Assembly in the coming weeks.

“In general terms, I would say there will be bills dealing with voter integrity. There will be pro-life bills,” he said.

Halloran also said that Senator Lou Ann Linehan will propose a bill for scholarship programs for private schools.

The legislature is expected to adjourn on April 20.
