Dear Speaker Ramsey and Speaker Harwell:

We oppose a special legislative session to consider an anti-transgender bathroom discrimination law.  It is never justified to spend the state's time and money to advance discrimination.  Thank you for considering our views.

    Stop wasting taxpayer dollars on this modern day witch hunt. Quit distracting voters from real issues in our state by fear mongering. Grow up and quit worrying about other people’s genitals.

    Hasn’t our state government done enough damage to our economy with all of these hate bills being passed and/or considered? We deserve more from our government than wasting our tax money to pass bills that infringe on the rights of others….why not work on the health care system that is bankrupting the middle class? Thank you for making a mockery of the good citizens of this state that love and embrace the differences in all. No hate in our state!!!!

    We have many more pressing issues than this. There is NO evidence that this is a problem ANYWHERE! You’re just pandering to the the far-right to score political points. Don’t waste my tax dollars debating an issue that’s NOT AN ISSUE!
