VICTORY: Arizona Gov. Brewer Vetoes Discrimination Bill

JanBrewer_detail

Last week, Arizona’s House and Senate passed S.B. 1062, a bill that would allow businesses to deny services as long as they invoked religious beliefs. The bill would mean a free pass for discrimination against marginalized groups like the LGBT community. That’s why the organization GetEQUAL started a MoveOn Petition, demanding that Republican Gov. Jan Brewer veto the anti-business, anti-equality, anti-LGBT bill. Pressure for a veto grew as more than 7,000 MoveOn members added their names to the petition, and yesterday, Gov. Brewer vetoed the bill, stating it had “the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve.”
