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.

    Things like this have me looking to leave the state and possibly the country of USA altogether. I am a highly educated teacher and work in inner city schools. To be frank, I am needed here. But not at the expense of so much and so many. We are a laughing stock in the nation already due to so many other issues. And economically we are blessed. But that will likely change drastically like in NC if you pass such legislation. The church is the bride of christ, not the whore of the republican party. Get religion out of the government .

    This bill nicknamed “The LGBT Erasure Bill” undermines protections for women and LGBT citizens and is a direct challenge to the SCOTUS decision of marriage equality. I am adamantly opposed and appalled that this time of legislation is even being considered and I urge Haslam to veto this discriminatory bill.

    No one I know, Republican or Democrat, Gay or Straight, supports this continued harassment of the LGBT community. Please encourage our State legislature to use their time on bills of value to our state and to stop this useless waste of time passing discriminatory bills!
