Responders Day at the Capitol!

NSVFA's Second Annual Responders Day at the Capitol was held March 16th at the Nebraska State Capitol. We began with an overview of the session from your lobbyist Jerry Stilmock and an address from Governor Ricketts. We then moved to the legislative session for introductions and had plenty of time to meet with your individual Senators to talk about local issues and bills in this session.
