State senators set to begin work on early childhood interim studies

by | May 15, 2024

First Five Nebraska is looking forward to working on interim studies with state senators over the next several months. Senators and legislative committees may introduce resolutions to take a closer look at topics of interest after the Legislature adjourns for the year. Like bills, resolutions are referred to a committee and, if requested, can have a hearing. Senators often introduce bills the following session based on what they learned during interim studies. Senators introduced 120 study resolutions this year. Below are resolutions focused on early childhood issues.

LR349, introduced by Senator Lou Ann Linehan (Dist. 39), is an interim study to examine the funding sources, including tax incentives and other methods, used for early childhood education programs in Nebraska.

LR423, introduced by Senator Ben Hansen (Dist. 16), is an interim study to examine child care providers in Nebraska and the shortage of child care options in rural Nebraska.

LR427, introduced by Senator John Fredrickson (Dist. 20), is an interim study to examine the use of the child care subsidy program in section 68-1206 as an incentive to recruit and retain employees in the child care industry.

LR429, introduced by Senator Brian Hardin  (Dist. 48), is an interim study to examine the Child Care Licensing Act and availability and affordability of liability insurance for licensed child care providers in Nebraska.

LR433, introduced by Senator Jen Day (Dist. 49), is an interim study to examine the availability and access to data regarding maternal and infant health care in Nebraska.

First Five Nebraska looks forward to supporting these senators on their interim studies. Please follow our social media accounts to receive updates on these studies: Facebook, X-Twitter and LinkedIn.
