Nebraska hasn't passed a single bill this session, amid filibusters over trans rights.

Nebraska lawmakers haven't passed a single bill this session, as a state lawmaker continues a weeks-long filibuster protest over trans rights and vows to "burn this session to the ground" if she has to.

Starting in February, Cavanaugh has filibustered every bill that has come before the legislature this session.

Under the bill's current version, physicians would be barred from providing gender-affirming procedures and care for Nebraska residents younger than 19.

Nebraska's bill is part of a nationwide trend in proposals targeting trans and LGBTQ people.

And so I don't think any policies that restrict the rights of children, because they are trans, are appropriate.

That is what I hope for every single day, it is what I am striving for every single day. »
