Murman submits proposal implementing age requirements to view drag shows; Hunt counters
LINCOLN, Neb. -- A bill proposed in the unicameral would place limitations on who can watch drag shows in Nebraska.
The bill would ban anyone under 19 from watching a drag show, and it would prohibit anyone under 21 from watching drag shows where alcohol is present.
LB371 was introduced by Republican State Sen. Dave Murman and is already stirring debate in the Legislature.
Democratic State Sen. Megan Hunt has filed a motion to postpone the bill indefinitely, a decision that is still pending.
Anyone who knowingly brings someone underage to a show would be subject to a misdemeanor. The entities themselves would be subject to a $10,000 fine per violation.
The bill would also make it illegal to use state funds to host a drag show.
