OMAHA (KPTM) - After six years, Sen. Danielle Conrad is reintroducing legislation that would prevent businesses from being able to discriminate against current or potential employees on they sexual orientation or marital status.
Rev. Royal D. Bush who marries same-sex couples says that this is a step in the right direction.
"We look at the equality changes that our city council has embraced, that Iowa has embraced," said Bush, "and that hopefully the state of Nebraska will soon embrace."
Senator Ernie Chambers tried fronting a similar bill in 2007, but it was shot down by a 27-15 vote.
Conrad believes that now is a better time for this issue, because people are becoming more accepting locally and nationally; especially in lieu of the repeal of the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy.
This bill will be proposed alongside two other measures that address foster care and adoption.
