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.

    Sign the petition: Governor Haslam, Veto SB1085/HB1111 Dear Governor Haslam, time and again, our legislators have written and passed pieces legislation that undermine the State's good name and standing in the civic community. Please, as you have in the past, use your power to veto this harmful and needless piece of legislation.

    No hate bills needed in TN. We also can’t risk tourists, conventions, events turning away from TN like they did to NC.

    Please don’t tarnish our state and reinforce the stereotype that our state isn’t a welcoming place for all the citizens of this country.
