LR 478 authorizes an interim study on whether or not the Nebraska civil rights laws should be expanded to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
An interim study signals that the subject matter is being contemplated by one or more legislators for introduction as a legislative bill in the upcoming session. Thus we can expect the introduction of a bill in 2013 that is similar to Omaha’s ordinance. We feel that the purpose of this interim-study hearing on December 10 will be to accumulate testimony that supports and justifies the legislation. It is vital that opposing views also be part of the record.
