Vote NO on HB1111

Please, vote NO on HB1111.  This bill is vague.  Many words in the Tennessee Code are undefined.  The Legislature has not had time to explore all the ways this new rubric for interpreting laws and state court rulings would have an impact on every area of law in our state.  This bill invites chaos.

The only thing clear about the bill is that it is a sneaky version of SB30/HB33.  It does the same thing plus a great deal more since it affects EVERY UNDEFINED WORD IN THE TENNESSEE CODE! 

This bill appears to be an effort to interfere with the marriages of same-sex couples.  If it does accomplish that, the State will be taken to court and lose, which will result in legal fees. 

Legal groups are not calling for this bill.  It achieves no good purpose for the people of Tennessee. 

Thank you for considering my views.

Vote NO on HB1111

HB1111 is the other LGBT Erasure bill. By interpreting undefined legal terms in the Tennessee Code according to their natural and ordinary meaning, it would affect LGBT relationships and identities. It would affecting LGBT parenting and many other areas of life. This bill could strip us of rights

Vote NO on House Bill 1111

HB1111 is a sneaky version of the LGBT Erasure bill, doing what SB30/HB33 does, without using the words "father," "mother," "husband," and "wife." It would require that undefined words in the Tennessee Code be given their natural and ordinary meaning. And that would cause problems for LGBT people.
