"Tennessee’s Republican Governor To Lawmakers: Drop The ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Bill"

Tennessee’s Republican Governor Bill Haslam is calling on lawmakers to drop the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill, a measure that would prohibit public elementary and middle schools from discussing sexual activity that is not related to “natural human reproduction science.” “I’ve said before I don’t think that should be a priority of the legislature,” Haslam said yesterday. “I think there’s other things that we can and should be focused on right now, and I’ve been up front about that from the very beginning.” Haslam did not say if he would veto the measure, which will likely come up next week.
