House, Senate Differ in Response to Anti-LGBT Bill Backlash

After a number of prominent businesses and organizations, including the Tennessee Titans and Amazon, spoke out in opposition to a slate of bills targeting the LGBT community, House Speaker Glen Casada responded by saying he was unfazed by the financial implications and that “they should take care of their stockholders and not get so much involved in politics.” The Tennessean reports Lt. Gov. Randy McNally took a different angle, saying via a spokesperson that he “prefers to focus on legislation that advances economic growth rather than district from it.” Two of the bills were scheduled to be considered in both chambers today.
