MS Manufacturers Association joins call for Gov. Bryant to veto HB 1523

The Mississippi Manufacturers Association has joined the list of organizations asking governor Bryant to veto House Bill 1523, calling it a discriminatory bill that would allow individuals, religious organizations and private associations to use religion as an excuse to discriminate against LGBT Mississippians.

“It is clear that many of our members find that HB 1523 would violate their corporate policies expressly providing for an inclusive workplace environment that supports diversity,” said MMA CEO and President Jay Moon. “This is not a bill that the MMA supports and we hope that it will not find its way into law.
