Outlaw puppy mills in Nebraska
Commercial breeding facilities are not needed. There are thousands of dogs being killed every week at the animal shelters because there's no homes for them. The dogs in the puppy mills are not taken care of they are neglected and only used for breeding. They have no vet care, no attention, no exercise and have never been on the grass.

Change the color scheme on the Nebraska license plate.
So we have been through this once before... The license plate was completely wrong before but now they have made a minor change to make it more Nebraska. But it still doesn't look very Nebraskan to me. I understand our state flag is blue and yellow, but that is the only place that we have ever used that color scheme. We are not Michigan... Why are we using the Michigan colors on a Nebraska license plate? When you think of Nebraska you automatically think of football and red and white or black. And the sower is nice but the plate needs to reflect more of the state than just the capitol city. Give it some color... We are going to be displaying these plates on our vehicles when we go traveling across country. Lets get this done and get it done right this time Nebraska... The image i have attached is a different idea for the license plate that i think would look pretty good. There are many more ideas out there that would be better than the plain boring thing they have designed now...
Petition to Nebraska Governor, Nebraska State House
Give Nebraska a State Reptile
A couple days ago I was curious about my home state, Nebraska, and what it stood for. When I got home I looked up the symbols that Nebraska symbolizes as. What I was surprised to see was that Nebraska hasn't entirely filled out its state symbols. Amphibians, mushrooms, and a official state food are a small number of symbols that haven't quite been decided yet. Feeling that Nebraska could add more. I thought that a symbol that Nebraska could add is a state reptile. The premise of a state reptile is nothing new. The first recognized state reptile was the common collared lizard. It was officially added as Oklahoma's state reptile in 1969 which was forty eight years ago. Currently twenty six states have a reptile to call their own, which is a little more than half the current number of American states. The states that have one even include Nebraska's border states such as Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming, so four out of the six states Nebraska borders has a reptile symbol. Most of the state symbols are turtles which is a common reptile throughout most of the United States, in fact the most used state reptile is the painted turtle. I'm not asking for the amount of official state reptiles that Florida has which is 3 and are state reptile, state saltwater reptile, and state tortoise. Just one recognized reptile would be enough for Nebraska in my opinion. I hope everyone considers that we should have one and that it isn't a rejected idea. Also on March 1st this year Nebraska just turned the ripe old age of one hundred and fifty years old. Wouldn't this be a fine birthday gift? I know that in the past states didn't receive a state reptile because it didn't make it past the voting stage or the senate didn't approve, such as Minnesota and Pennsylvania. Some of the most important people in this process is the public themselves and interest they show. The only things that I want out of the chosen animal is that it's a reptile native to a large part of Nebraska and isn't an overly done animal, that's it. You can leave suggestions in comments for what you want as Nebraska's state reptile. So that was my take on the issue and I hope you like, sign, and share my petition! Also if you're wondering the picture is of a great plains skink.

Support Two Person Train Crew Bill, Nebraska LB404
The Two Person Train Crew Bill LB404 (2017) is extremely important to all Nebraskans with regard to public safety. Reducing the size of crew from two people to one person would make all over-the-road freight trains less safe in our state. Nebraska wants Washington to know we are serious about public safety! Senators, Please vote "In Favor" of this bill to be advanced to the House. Full Text LB404 (2017)
Petition to Pete Ricketts
Demand that Gov. Ricketts bring back our State Troopers from North Dakota.
Governor Pete Ricketts has sent 11 Nebraska State Troopers to North Dakota in order to assist in their attack against Native American people defending water and their sacred land. Governor Ricketts has no business sending publicly funded Nebraska employees to fight in another state - especially a fight against Native American rights. Let's demand that he order the 11 Nebraska State Troopers back and stop interfering where he doesn't belong.
Petition to Mayor David Black
Take Down the Nativity Scene in Papillion City Park
Every year the city of Papillion sets up a Nativity Scene and other religious themed decorations in City Park along the main street of Papillion. These religious decorations contrast with the more secular lights of the "Winter Wonderland" display and can alienate members of the community that don't identify as Christian. The purpose of this petition is to get the city of Papillion to take down the religious display on its government land. This petition is not advocating for the removal of the whole "Winter Wonderland" display only the nativity scene and other religion based decorations.
