Voting on equality, it’s just not for marriage anymore. From Omaha.com:
An attempt to repeal Omaha’s legal protections for gay and transgender residents is under way, a move that could inject the contentious issue into next year’s city election.
A group calling itself the Omaha Liberty Project filed a petition request with the City of Omaha this week, seeking to put the city’s expanded anti-discrimination protections to a public vote.
City legal officials are reviewing the proposed petition, a step that could be completed early next week.
When approved, the petition’s language then would be sent to the Douglas County Election Commissioner’s Office, city legal officials said. Once the petition is officially launched, the group would have 30 days to collect enough signatures.
