Bill banning gender-affirming health care for youth advances in Nebraska Legislature

LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) – After three days of debate, a bill has moved in the Nebraska Legislature that would ban gender-supportive health care for minors.

On Friday, lawmakers voted to advance the bill, introduced by Sen. Kathleen Kauth, 30-17. Two senators did not vote on the bill.

The debate on the bill came after three weeks of filibuster efforts, led by Senator Machaela Cavanaugh.

The bill will now go through the entry and review process, which is where it will be checked for technical and grammatical accuracy.

Cavanaugh said earlier this week that he would resume his filibuster if the bill was brought forward.
