Freedom of Conscience Action Alert
LB586: Prohibit Employment Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity
Introduced by: Senator Morfeld
This bill would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in hiring and employment in Nebraska. It also strikes creed, essentially a set of beliefs, from the Nebraska’s current Employment Nondiscrimination Act. The bill would force any business or organization that has a contract with the state to have a sexual orientation non-discrimination policy.
Status: LB586 was voted out of Judiciary Committee but has not been scheduled for debate on the floor yet. Now is the time. Your state senator needs to hear from YOU.
