As a result, NFA and the Nebraska Catholic Conference submitted a letter to respectfully request that the bill receive a second hearing. Read the letter here: Letter to Judiciary re LB 485 hearing.
The Judiciary Committee VOTED 4-3 AGAINST a motion to move LB 485 out of committee on February 10, 2014. Senator Conrad, who introduced the bill, has vowed to continue to push for another vote at a later date. Check back often for current information!

Nebraska Family Alliance will build on the strong foundation of both organizations to fulfill our mission: standing for justice and strengthening families in Nebraska.
