Sicko State Lawmakers Hot to Overturn Nashville's Gay Non-Discrimination Law

Tennessee's homophobic state lawmakers plan to vote on Bill 600 Monday night. Bill 600 is the GOP's pro discrimination against gays and lesbians bill (Bill 600 - "Equal Access to Intrastate Commerce Act” - text here, pdf ).

The Tennessee Equality Project has dubbed Bill 600, the Special Access to Discriminate Act (SAD).

There are so many homophobes in Tennessee's Republican-dominated legislature that no one doubts that the hateful bill will pass.

SAD is also a direct assault on Nashville and the right of all local governments to enact policies reflecting the values of our communities. Nashville will not take this lying down. Tennessee's Big Government Republicans need to stay out of the business of local government!
