LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) - State lawmakers are expected to debate a bill introduced Tuesday that would require Nebraska employers to offer a vaccination exemption.

LB-906, introduced by State Sen. Ben Hansen of Blair, would require the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services to provide either a medical or religious exemption for any employee who does not consent to a vaccine requirement from their employer.

The bill would be limited to only vaccinations against COVID-19.

The Legislature is expected to debate the bill during Wednesday’s session.
