Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona has vetoed the controversial SB 1062, the bill that would allow businesses to discriminate against and refuse to serve gay people. In a press conference Wednesday night, Brewer defended her record of protecting religious freedom, but said the bill was poorly worded and could have “unintended consequences.” Both of the state's U.S. senators, who are Republicans, spoke out against the bill. Earlier on Wednesday, the National Football League considered moving the Super Bowl from the state if SB 1062 was signed into law.
