On Abortion: Launch a yearlong "Culture of Life and Love Initiative"

We defended the unborn by restricting abortions beyond 12 weeks. We will continue to embrace life here in Nebraska with the launch of a yearlong "Culture of Life and Love Initiative." It will provide resources to expecting moms, especially those in crisis and who need support more than ever. Much work remains to be done, but this Legislature should be proud of its investments in Nebraska's future.

On Civil Rights: I don't want my granddaughter competing against a boy

Supporting our women athletes takes more than just buying tickets and watching games, it also means protecting them in the arena and in the locker room. Simply put, I don't want my granddaughter to bear the fundamental unfairness of competing against a boy. And I certainly don't want her to suffer the indignity of showering next to a boy. And that goes both ways--our boys shouldn't be sharing showers with girls. This is commonsense stuff that the overwhelming majority of Nebraskans support.

On Foreign Policy: Keep enemies of our country from owning land in our state

With our water being the envy of the world, we cannot allow adversarial foreign interests the ability to take it. That is why I am partnering with Senator DeKay to modernize Nebraska's laws on land ownership to prohibit purchases by adversaries. The bill rescinds exemptions for foreign ownership, such as foreign oil, gas and mineral development in the state. It is imperative to keep enemies of our country from owning land in our state, especially near sensitive military installations.

On Government Reform: Get government out of the way; reduce regulations

To support and grow these incredible economic assets, among our chief goals in state government must be to get government out of the way, reduce regulations and bureaucratic hurdles, and empower people and businesses to thrive. In our administration, we call this Operation: Clean Out the Closets, in which we try to identify every statutory or regulatory mandate that adds needless costs to healthcare, education, senior care, and businesses of all kinds.
