The governor has decided to veto the religious freedom bill that allows equal protection for religious groups as is allowed to fraternities and sororities at an university that receives in excess of 20 million in state dollars. It covered state schools and Vandy (as they get over 20 million dollars from the state) but it was an optional law. No one had to follow it unless they wanted the money.
The governor still vetoed it.
His reason? He did not want the legislature involved in "private business". In my eyes it was optional.
On the other hand, the governor will not veto the bill limiting charter schools from hiring (in most cases) any legal immigrants. Something to me that flies in the face of nondiscrimination on the basis of nation of origin (title VI). A part of the bill of rights.
The governor agrees it has major constitutional issues but his reason for no veto so far? Its optional.
To me if you are going to veto something it should be the one that has serious constitutional questions not the one that allows religious freedom. But that's just my advice. Taking it is optional.
