Nebraska lawmakers advanced a bill Tuesday regarding abortion notification for minors.
Under the bill (LB1782), schools will no longer be required to provide information to students in grades seven through 12 about how to obtain an abortion without a parent's consent.
The bill needed 25 votes to advance from first-round debate. It advanced on a vote of 38 to four.
The bill is by Lincoln Senator Mike Foley.
Earlier, Foley got enough votes to stop a filibuster by Omaha Senator Ernie Chambers, who opposes the measure.
Nebraska is the only state with such a law.
Foley says it should not be the job of schools to provide such information.
