Lauren Means signed Governor Haslam, Veto SB1085/HB1111 2017-04-28 12:21:26 -0500Gov. Haslam,
I urge you to actually speak to some of the people that would be affected by you signing this bill into TN law. It may seem very benign on the surface. However, once you really read it and consider that it is trying to negate all the progress we have been working to make when it comes to equal civil rights, you have to be on the right side of history. I voted for you to be the governor of this great state and I would be more than happy to speak with you about this issue and how it will affect me, my family, and my community. I implore you to veto this hateful and discriminatory bill.
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!5,715 signatures
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.
