Northeast Nebraska Senator To Host Wrap-Up Meetings Following 106th Legislative Session

WAYNE – Those living in Legislative District 17 in northeast Nebraska are invited to attend one of three meetings next week.

Senator Joni Albrecht represents District 17 in Dakota, Thurston and Wayne counties.

On Monday, June 17 Senator Albrecht will provide a wrap-up of the first session of the 106th Session and take questions.

Plan to visit Tacos & More (509 Dearborn St.) in Wayne from 9 – 10 a.m.; the Pender Community Center (614 Main St.) from 11 a.m. until noon or the Hy-Vee meeting room (2501 Cornhusker Dr.) in South Sioux City between 2 – 3 p.m.

The Governor’s office also released information about a ceremonial bill signing event that took place Monday for LB209 introduced by Senator Albrecht of Thurston.

LB209 requires physicians who prescribe the abortion pill to inform the mother that if she changes her mind after taking the pill (mifepristone), it may be possible to continue her pregnancy. In addition to strengthening the state’s informed consent laws, the bill also directs the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services to publish information so that women can find a qualified health care professional to administer the reversal process.

The Legislature voted to approve the bill 36-12.
