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.

    Don Jackson > Any and all efforts to harass or intimidate LGBT community members should be fought at all levels. Morally reprehensible. Please consider the cost = not just $$ but lives. This legislation encourages hate and should be vetoed. thanks

    There is absolutely no reason for this legislation to ever have gotten this far. There is no excuse for the legislature wasting time and resources on legislation that is blatantly unconstitutional discrimination. You have a record of being a forward-thinking governor on many issues. Be that forward-thinking pragmatist and veto this needless, hateful waste of Tennessee’s time, energy and financial resources.
