The State Legislature has been in all-day committee hearings for a month now, quickly moving through the 700-plus legislative bills and constitutional amendment resolutions introduced during the first 10 days of the session.
To provide another snapshot the NCC’s daily activities, I’d like to highlight last week’s legislation we lobbied during the committee hearing process. The issues ran the spectrum of Catholic social teaching.

NCC and Diocese of Lincoln Expand Pro-Life Efforts
The NCC is excited to announce that we have hired Paige Brown to fill the newly created position of Statewide Pro-Life Activities Coordinator.
As statewide pro-life activities coordinator, Paige will build on the great work of former pro-life staff members Greg Schleppenbach, Tom Venzor and Jeff Kanger, according to the NCC. The new coordinator also will complement the work of associate director for Pro-Life and Family Policy, Marion Miner.
Paige received her undergraduate degree in political science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2018.
As a university student, Paige was president of UNL Students for Life and received the Students for Life of America Wilberforce Leadership Fellowship.
Upon graduation, she worked as administrative aide and committee clerk for State Senator Mike Hilgers in the Nebraska Legislature.
