Governor Haslam, Veto SB1085/HB1111

signing.jpg

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.

    My marriage is NOT up for interpretation. My wife is my wife and will be my wife until the day I die.

    We have come too far !! We have a large LGBT community in Nashville— many of who are married. We are one of the largest growing cities—a bill like this does not need to be in existence .

    LGBT marriages are not a threat to anyone. Please do not return us to the 1950’s and take away rights.
