Arizona lawmakers are feeling increasing pressure from the gay community to reject a bill they believe discriminates against them. The statehouse in the Grand Canyon State recently passed a bill allowing businesses to not serve homosexuals. This caused an uproar in the gay community, as well as in the public as people weighed in on blogs and social media.
Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has joined in calling for governor Jan Brewer to veto the measure. She has not yet said how she will act on the bill, although most political observers believe she will reject the proposed law. Brewer usually does not comment on pending legislation. She did tweet "I assure you, as always, I will do the right thing for the State of Arizona."
The measure was supported by the Center for Arizona Policy, a socially-conservative group. They claim the bill protects religious freedom.
