MURFREESBORO, Tenn. July 7, 2015– In wake of recent Supreme Court rulings regarding gay marriage, Rep. Bryan Terry met with Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery to discuss religious liberty and freedom, as well as, possible solutions.
Today, in an official announcement, Slatery announced that he joined 14 other state Attorneys General to urge Congress to protect religious freedoms.
“I am glad to see Slatery taking a stand to defend religious liberty. The issue is a concern of Tennesseans and as leaders, it is our duty to address those concerns,” said Terry.
In an opinion piece last week, Terry discussed that House Speaker Beth Harwell had appointed a point person and set forth a process to handle the legislative issues from the Obergefell vs Hodges ruling.
Terry has introduced ideas for legislative solutions and passed them on to the point person for consideration.
“I am committed to building a consensus for multiple solutions that are being considered in wake of the Court’s decision,” said Terry.
