IN RED STATES, BUSINESSES GEARING UP TO FIGHT BATHROOM BILLS

News from The Associated Press:

“Sean Henry, the president of Tennessee’s NHL team, is stunned he even has to explain why he hopes state legislators will snub bills similar to North Carolina’s transgender bathroom law, which has consumed that state for months and scared off businesses and sporting events.

The Nashville Predators team is among about 300 companies, ranging from health-care giant HCA to FedEx, joining under the moniker Tennessee Thrives to oppose bathroom and religious objection bills, which they consider discriminatory and bad for business. Companies in other GOP-led states have had success voicing opposition under similar names: Georgia Prospers, Opportunity West Virginia, Missouri Competes.

‘I honestly cannot believe that in 2016 I’m actually asked a question as to why I would support anti-discrimination groups,’ Henry said. ‘I think the real question is: who hasn’t joined?'”
