Christine McInerney signed Governor Haslam, Veto SB1085/HB1111 via 2017-05-04 14:12:01 -0500This 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.

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.
