The Autism bill still has life in the legislature, despite opposition from some in the unicameral.

The bill would require insurance companies in Nebraska to cover the Applied Behavioral Analysis, which is a type of therapy for kids with autism.

Senator Colby Coash, the author, said it would help around 1,000 Nebraska kids with autism.

Coash told 10/11 he attached it to another bill and Tuesday, it advanced out of the banking and insurance committee.

It's possible it could be heard on the floor at the Capitol.

Coash said insurance companies aren't balking at it. He's worried however that time may not be on his side.

With the legislative session winding down fast, its fate remains up in the air.
