Jan Brewer vetoes Arizona SB 1062 (Politico)

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announced Wednesday that she has vetoed SB 1062, the controversial bill that has been criticized as discriminatory towards gays and lesbians, saying the measure, “has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve.”

“Senate Bill 1062 does not address a specific or present concern related to religious liberty in Arizona,” Brewer told reporters during a press conference Wednesday evening. “The bill is broadly worded and could result in unintended and negative consequences.”
