NebraskaIn one of the reddest US states, the Nebraska state legislature is considering three separate gay rights measures. LGBTQ Nation reports:

The issues up for discussion Thursday in the Legislature’s Judiciary Committee deal with discrimination against employees and extending rights for people seeking to adopt or provide foster care to a child. Lincoln Sen. Danielle Conrad’s bill would ban businesses from discriminating against current or prospective employees based on their sexual orientation or marital status. The bill would not apply to religious groups. “Employment decisions should not be based on classifications of who someone is or who somebody loves,” Conrad said. “It should be based on merit and how qualified someone is to do a job.”
