2021 priorities:

LB108 SNAP Cliff Effect Bill - PASSED!!
Hardworking Nebraskans will no longer have to choose between feeding their families or accepting a small increase in pay. Thank you for all of your help and advocacy for our low-income friends and neighbors who depend on SNAP benefits. And special thanks to the legislators who voted to override the governor's veto of this important bill. It will improve the lives of many Nebraskans.

LB485 Expanded Childcare Subsidy Eligibility - PASSED!!
On May 26, the governor signed LB485 and expanded the child care subsidy eligibility for low-income families. Thank you for your support of this important bill!
