LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) — Sen. Machaela Cavanaugh has agreed to end her 3-week filibuster, for now.

The announcement came Thursday morning after a particularly controversial day at the Capitol.

Cavanaugh compared proposals that would impact transgender youth to genocide.

Both LB574 and LB575 led to his stonewalling in the first place.

He brought the legislative session to a crawl, with the legislature introducing amendments to every bill that came to the floor.

He even continued to do it despite suffering from a sore throat at one point.

President John Arch has tried to speed up the process, making the Legislature work at times during lunch.

They will soon have all-day debates once the committee hearings conclude later this month.
