Governor Haslam, Veto SB1085/HB1111


Add your name and urge Governor Haslam to veto SB1085/HB1111, the Sneaky LGBT Erasure Bill.  After you sign the petition, share it with your friends.  We will deliver a hard copy of the signatures to the Governor's Office.  Your voice can help determine whether he uses the VETO pen or the BECOMES LAW pen!

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.

    Governor Haslam, please tell me you have already vetoed this! It’s clearly a sneaky way to discriminate against people who just want to have the right to live and love the way the rest of us can. Thank you.

    Veto anti-LGBT legislation. It’s ridiculous and out-dated and we won’t stand for it.

    Scott Bishop—This is blatantly unconstitutional discrimination and pandering to the far-right bigots.

    Anyone who supports or votes for or signs this heinous legislation is a hateful bigot.
