Lambda Legal Applauds Arizona Governor's Veto of Antigay Bill
February 26, 2014

Arizona's recent history has taught corporate and civic leaders that discrimination is terrible for business and for communities. 

This religion bill would have reversed the state's hard-won social and economic progress by declaring "open season" on LGBT people. 

Everyone in Arizona deserves respect and inclusion, including same-sex couples and their families, and people of all faiths, traditions and backgrounds. 

Governor Brewer did the right thing with today's veto. May it be a guiding signal for elected leaders across the country considering similar bills.
