Let's Work Together

I am always amazed that a group of local senators cannot work together to get things done that really matter.  There are senators from both parties who cause more division than cooperation in what is supposed to be a non-partisan legislature called the Unicameral.  They seems to waste valuable time with pet projects, instead of focusing on bigger picture important issues.  There is one senator that recently wanted to get an initiative through the legislature restricting the sale of ivory, to protect animals such as elephants and rhinoceroses from poaching.  There are already federal laws restricting ivory sales.  Do we have an underground ivory market in Nebraska?  I've never heard about it.  I think persons with disabilities, for instance, would be better served with any money an ivory restriction law would cost.  The governor's budget has cut funds to those providing services to persons with disabilities, to the point where some agencies will have to close down.  Where will those persons with disabilities get services then?  My suggestions to senators, let's work together to solve those problems that are really important. Let the Feds deal with ivory.
