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.

    We do not want to go down the same road as North Carolina. This bill is unnecessary. Please veto this bill to prevent discrimination, as well as costly legal battles that could result from this bill. Thank you.

    Dear Gov. Haslam,

    These bills are cruel. They subject our LGBTQ neighbors to second class citizenship status, and they threaten the economic health of our state by risking deserved boycotts. You do not have to submit to the pressure from hatred. Please stand up for ALL Tennesseans and veto this dangerous bill.

    Governor Haslam, please veto this bill! It does nothing but increase legal ambiguity and reduce LGBT citizens of our fine state. I urge you to veto this bill.
