Ask Sen. Rose to take SB1304 off notice

I am writing as your constituent to ask you to talk to Sen. Rose and urge him to take SB1304 off notice.  It could be up for a vote as early as Tuesday.

This bill would make private adoption and foster care agencies eligible for state funds. They should not be able to use my taxpayer dollars to pick which prospective parents can use their services based on a religious test.  It's not right to give public funds to agencies that are in the business of determining who has the right religion.

I want my tax dollars used to support adoption and foster care agencies focused on the best interests of children and getting them into qualified, loving homes as quickly as possible.

Please, help convince Sen. Rose to take this bill off notice.  Thank you for considering my views.

summary

SB1304, the adoption discrimination bill, is coming up for a vote in the full Tennessee Senate. Contact your state senator so members of the Senate can urge Sen. Rose to take the bill off notice. In other words, we want them to ask him not to run the bill.
