We have so much more important issues facing our State and Country to be spending precious time and energy on these discrimination bills. Make the right economic and business decision and lets move forward and show the others around the Country Tennessee compassion and invitation to come and do business in Tennessee!

Dear Governor Haslam,
We urge you to veto HB1840, which allows counselors to turn away clients based on the counselor's biases and values. This bill puts the focus on the desires of counselors rather than on the needs of clients, damaging the counseling profession and putting clients at risk.
An anti-bullying amendment was stripped from the bill in the House Health Committee leaving youth vulnerable in areas where mental health services are not widely available.
Thank you for considering our views.
