An Omaha group is attempting to repeal Omaha's new legal protections for gay and transgender residents.
A group calling itself the Omaha Liberty Project recently filed a petition request with the city of Omaha.
Once approved, the group will have 30 days to collect enough signatures to put the repeal to a vote. It's unclear how many signatures the group will need.
The Omaha City Council narrowly approved the ordinance in March that bans employers, job-training programs, labor groups and other organizations from discriminating based on sexual orientation. The measure included exemptions for religious organizations.
Patrick Bonnett, executive director of the Omaha Liberty Project, says the group will issue a statement once the petition request has been reviewed by the city.
