Hello, I'm Nebraska State Senator Bill Avery.
Welcome to the online headquarters for the 28th District of the Nebraska Legislature. It has been my honor to serve as your Senator since January 2007.
The 103nd Legislature, First Session has adjourned Sine Die! In the words of Speaker Adams, the session was "difficult", however we accomplished a great deal of very important work. As always, it has been an honor to be a part of a unique and successful one-house institution, which was the vision of former Senator George W. Norris.
During the 2013 session, I was successful in repealing the unconstitutional Campaign Finance Limitation Act; allowing for greater access to public records; eliminating conflicts of interest from college Board of Governors; and eliminating inefficient boards and commissions from statute. Please visit my 2013 End of Session Update to learn about the Legislature's major accomplishments this year.
Missed last year's accomplishments? Please visit my 2012 End of Session Update to learn about what we did last year.
Finally, please don't hesitate to contact me and let me know what's on your mind. You can contact me by phone: (402) 471.2633; by mail: 1423 Nebraska State Capitol, Lincoln, Nebraska 68509; by email: email@example.com; or on Facebook or Twitter. I look forward to hearing from you!
