    I am a Tennessean and I deserve the same rights and protections as any other citizen of Tennessee. Please do the right thing and veto this bill. Otherwise, Tennesseans will be forced to spend money defending this bill in court. You will lose the case and the citizens of Tennessee will lose dollars that could go to make everyone’s life better.

    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.
