Jeff Underwood signed VETO Hate Bill 1840, the Counseling Discrimination bill via 2016-04-08 14:24:39 -0500Please help prove to our backwards border states and the rest of the nation that we are not a state of fear-mongering bible-thumpers. We are a state of free thinkers. We stand for freedom and equality above all else. Please veto this bill and preserve equality in this Free State of Tennessee.
Please, add your voice and urge Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam to veto this discriminatory bill.4,239 signatures
Dear Governor Haslam,
We urge you to veto HB1840, which allows counselors to turn away clients based on the counselor's biases and values. This bill puts the focus on the desires of counselors rather than on the needs of clients, damaging the counseling profession and putting clients at risk.
An anti-bullying amendment was stripped from the bill in the House Health Committee leaving youth vulnerable in areas where mental health services are not widely available.
Thank you for considering our views.
