    Dear Governor Haslam,

    As a citizen of our great state I can not condone this bill. If put into place many residents and members of OUR LGBTQ community will leave as well as sour the reputation of tolerance further smearing our already intolerant image for visitors, residents, and to the world. Tourists are revenue. Subtle hate rhetoric as this bill represents will certainly deter tourists. Please choose to vetoe.


    Very Respectfully,

    Joseph Turner

    Governor Haslam, Veto SB1085/HB1111

    Dear Governor Haslam,

    We ask you to veto SB1085/HB1111.  This bill, as the Attorney General has noted, is broadly written.  Its vagueness could result in conflicts with existing laws about judicial interpretation.  These conflicts are likely to cause discrimination against LGBTQ people, particularly with respect to marriage, adoption, and legal documents.  This bill risks subjecting Tennessee to the same scrutiny that North Carolina has received.  We cannot afford hundreds of millions of dollars in economic boycotts and sanctions.  Please, veto this bill so we can avoid judicial chaos and costly discrimination.  Thank you for considering our views.
