We expect to open several hotels in Mississippi in the near future, and believe this legislation will have a profound negative financial impact on our business in Mississippi as tourists, event planners and even corporations will react hostilely to this discriminatory legislation and will choose to take their business to locations outside of the State of Mississippi. We urge you to oppose House Bill 1523 in its current form and to help Mississippi remain a State that is welcoming to all.
