OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – The University of Nebraska’s medical school is seeking 25 people for a study of a medication derived from marijuana.
The University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha says the study will investigate the use of cannabidiol in patients with drug-resistant epilepsy who also will take anti-epileptic drugs.
Cannabidiol is extracted from the marijuana plant – Cannabis sativa – and is distinct from the component that makes people high. The study medication is called Epidiolex. It’s described as a plant-based pharmaceutical formulation of pure cannabidiol and contains only trace amounts of the psychoactive component.
The study is authorized under a legislative bill approved in 2015.
BENNETT, Neb. (AP) – Authorities in southeastern Nebraska are investigating a fiery crash into a bridge pillar that killed a Lincoln man.
The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office says the crash happened just before 1:30 p.m. Wednesday on state Highway 2 near Bennett.
Investigators say a car driven by 26-year-old Thomas Neeley veered off the highway into the grass medium and struck a Highway 43 bridge pillar. The car caught fire, and bystanders were able to pull Neeley from the wreckage, but he died at the scene.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
Each legislative session, senators are given the opportunity to introduce interim studies. Through
interim studies, senators and committees can delve deeper into policy issues, bring stakeholders
together, and potentially find solutions that may not be obvious during the busy legislative
This year, I introduced three interim studies on a variety of issues. The first relates to Nebraska’s
aging population, as well as my work with Alzheimer’s and related diseases. The second seeks to
examine existing laws governing the collection of sales tax for online purchases. And finally, the
third will look into inconsistencies in agricultural land valuation by county assessors.
The first interim study I introduced, LR 507, relates to an issue with which I have been closely
involved. The study’s purpose is to examine the development of a public notification system to
broadcast when vulnerable adults go missing. This concept has been put in place in a number of
states, and has been dubbed the “Silver Alert,” as it resembles the more wellknown “Amber
Alert.” The Aging Nebraskans Task Force, of which I am a member, identified this as a need to
aid Nebraskans suffering from Alzheimer’s and their families and caregivers. This study will
look at a variety of details, including law enforcement procedures, broadcast protocols, and
verification techniques, in order to ensure that this new program will effectively aid Nebraska’s
LR 511, my interim study on internet sales tax, will be examined by the Revenue Committee. Under current law, a state cannot require a business to collect sales tax if it does not have a
physical presence in the state. However, some court decisions suggest that states may be moving
toward a more modern sales tax collection process, if there is a sufficient reason for them to do
so, and courts are more receptive to these new approaches. Not collecting internet sales tax puts
those online retailers, such as giants like Amazon, at a huge advantage over Main Street
businesses that contribute so much to the health of a community and to the tax base. I believe we
should look carefully at this, and keep Nebraska at the forefront of this emerging issue.
Finally, I introduced LR 604, another taxrelated study. This particular study deals with an issue
that I, along with many other rural senators, think should be near the top of the Legislature’s
priority list. It will simply examine the practices that county assessors use to determine
agricultural land value, and will review the role the Department of Revenue’s property
assessment division has played in maintaining some consistency throughout the state. Determining issues with valuation is an integral part of bringing property tax relief to
Nebraskans, and I hope this study can shed light on potential solutions.
Interim studies are just part of what I will be examining over the next several months, before the
start of the next legislative session. I will be traveling across District 43, which encompasses 13
counties in western and north central Nebraska, to hear from constituents about what issues mean most to you. You can always contact me with questions at my Lincoln office or reach me on my cell at (308) 458-9948.
