LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska lawmakers are one step closer to making it a criminal offense to take pictures up a woman’s skirt.

The Judiciary Committee advanced the measure on Wednesday for debate in the full Legislature.

The bill would make it a misdemeanor to shoot photographs or film of body parts that are not generally visible to the public without a person’s knowledge and consent. Subsequent violations would be a felony.

Cell phones and small cameras are commonly used for “upskirting.”

Sen. Amanda McGill of Lincoln, the bill’s introducer, says the problem has become more prevalent with changes in technology.
