Supporting social development in Early Childhood
Nebraska's 2014 legislative session adjourned Sine Die on April 17. During the short session, the Legislature reviewed hundreds of bills, many of them dealing with contentious issues like Medicaid expansion, prison reform and tax reform. In total, the Legislature introduced 466 bills. In addition, 393 bills carried over from the previous session. Of the bills introduced this session, 112 became law.
Despite debating bills covering a wide range of diverse topics, quality early childhood education remained an important topic of discussion for Nebraska senators. As evidence, observers need look no further than the mainline budget bill. The bill allocates $3.2 million in grants to schools to start or expand high-quality early childhood education opportunities in their communities, as well as dollars targeted to ensure program quality and accountability. The budget also makes a critical investment in both parents and the early childhood workforce by addressing social and emotional development in children who exhibit challenging behaviors.

Ezekiel Emanuel is our President's health care guru/czar/advisor. He has said:
"Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years." (Lancet, Jan. 31, 2008).
