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.

    Gov. Haslam,

    This bill needs to be vetoed. It isn’t representative of Tennesseans. It’s representative of a few senators and state reps who choose to pass discriminatory legislation. Those days should be over. We can’t progress as a state with such stagnate minds. I have more important business that I need to concentrate on and I can’t because I am continually having to voice my opinion to make sure my rights as a citizen of the great state of Tennessee are not trampled. Let’s come into 2017! We are in modern times and we are not going backwards. If nothing more, think about the money this state will lose because of being afraid to lose a vote! It’s not good legislation. It will affect all Tennesseans by the time it’s said and done. Do the right thing for the citizens of Tennessee that you represent! Veto this bill!
