Stopping Discrimination Is Bad for Business, Governor Says

Stopping businesses from discriminating against gay people would be bad for the economy, or so says the governor of Tennessee.

Gov. Bill Haslam signed a bill in May that voided antidiscrimination ordinances created by cities and counties, which had barred employers and others from discriminating against gay people.

But Haslam told the Nashville City Paper that he's not only against local ordinances. If someone proposed adding gay people to the state's antidiscrimination law, he'd oppose that too.
