[UPDATED] Nebraska state senator introduces bill to prevent local transgender-LGBT anti-discrimination ordinances.

Nebraska State Sen. Beau McCoy's "uniformity" bill is a smokescreen.

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — [UPDATED 2-21-12: This bill is now scheduled to be heard before the legislature's Judiciary Committee this week. See below.] Nebraskans want uniformity, the senator says, but make no mistake, this is an anti-LGBT bill. State Sen. Beau McCoy says  local anti-discrimination laws create a “patchworks quilt” of uneven laws across the state — if there is to be an anti-LGBT discrimination law, it should be at the state level only.

This is a smokescreen. Indeed, in Omaha, another LGBT protection ordinance is being proposed and this “uniformity” law would prevent the ordinance from becoming law.

The senator is refusing to say if he’d support a statewide anti-LGBT discrimination bill because it ‘isn’t on the table.’

Don’t fall for this political manuever to head off Omaha’s attempt to get transgender and gay people in a legal protected class. Nebraskans, call your state senator and get this bill killed.
