Officials from ten U.S. companies Thursday wrote to the governor of Mississippi urging him to overturn a controversial law that opponents say discriminates against gay and transsexual people.The measure, known as HB 1523, was signed into law on Tuesday by Mississippi's Republican Governor Phil Bryant.North Carolina also is facing growing protests by major companies against recently passed state legislation targeting transgender people.In a similar letter to North Carolina's Republican governor, Pat McCrory, nearly 100 representatives of companies such as Apple, Bank of America, Marriott, Starbucks and Facebook also warned of the law's impact on tourism and business.
