State Senator Amanda McGill introduced four bills supporting Nebraskans who have honorably served our state and country. Two bills support military members and spouses seeking work in licensed fields here in Nebraska.
“With the winding down of conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, we have many young men and women returning home in need of jobs,” said Sen. McGill. “LB 892 will help them use relevant military experience to obtain the licenses needed to do similar jobs here in Nebraska.”
Two of the bills introduced by Sen. McGill focus on the availability of military license plates. Constituents expressed a desire to create these plates over the interim.
"Nebraska Armed Forces Pride Plates Legislation would be a display of great respect for the service men and women who are or who have served their country so nobly with honor, courage and commitment, and for those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice,” said retired U.S. Marine Corp Captain Jonathan Schwarz. “I would think and hope that all of Nebraska's State Senators would gladly want to stand behind the men and women of the Armed Forces of this nation as well as their constituents in supporting this bill and I want to thank Senator Amanda McGill and her staff for their efforts in working on and backing this legislation."
