Now the question is: did they fight against the bill, or are they just paying lip service to this position?


According to this blog, they may have worked worked behind the scenes:

Nissan - Nissan issued an equivocal statement last Friday, but then issued a much better one late Monday opposing the legislation, right before the governor signed it. To Nissan's credit, I heard rumors that they did much more behind the scenes, so I'm positioning them pretty high up on the list in terms of helpfulness.

Yes, but I am not like most pollenticians--they are also very good "pollenators" :lol:

I suspect these "petitions" aren't for real anyway, they just stir up a tempest in a teapot and sell the email addresses they collect.

From the message a few above, it sounds like they actively were opposing this bill, not supporting it. So I gather they had their ducks in a row.

Signed the petition but too late.

The Gov signed the bill.

The bill is correct; civil rights and employment regulations are a matter of state and federal law. One problem with local government legislating this is how do you define what is more or less strict. Creating an inhospitable environment of patchwork regulations for business is certainly something else Tennessee wants to avoid. The last thing they need is to follow in Michigan's footsteps.

No doubt the same folks who object to this Tennessee bill also objected to Arizona exerting their right to enforce immigration law, saying that was under federal authority. Funny how people like to pick and choose as it suits them.

Well I'm sure no one would be complaining if the bill also made discrimination based on sexual preference illegal state wide. The fact that the bill didn't do that shows its true underlying motivation.
