Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is likely to veto the states controversial measure that could allow businesses to refuse service to gay and lesbians due to religious beliefs, according to three people close to the governor and familiar with her thinking.
One of those is longtime Brewer political adviser Chuck Coughlin, who told NBC News: Its been her proclivity in the past to focus on the priorities she wants them [the legislature] to accomplish, and this was clearly not part of her agenda.
She doesnt want to take any actions that could jeopardize the economic momentum weve seen here in Arizona, said another person close to the governor.
The Republican governor is flying back to Phoenix on Tuesday after attending National Governors Association meetings this last week. Coughlin said she will meet with stakeholders on both sides on Wednesday and likely make her decision on Thursday or Friday. She has until Saturday morning to sign or veto the bill.

She caved on 0DeathCare, why wouldn’t she cave on this?
Brewer is not only going against the people of her state, but she is violating the principles of her faith and the Republican Party.
While not an impeachable offense, she could be expelled from the GOP.
“Anti-gay” my foot! Merchants have explained repeatedly that they aren’t against serving gays; they are against serving gay weddings. A merchant would be crazy to turn away business just because the customer is gay.
we can’t even ‘expel” Boner, what chance do we have with this troll RINO?
Good. Not only is this statute absurdly unconstitutional, it WILL come back to bit we Christians in our collective a**es as it will be used against us in time.
There are ways to write statutes that protect religious liberties but in the rush to be the “first” we end up with these unconstitutional laws, COPA being a perfect example.
This law would end up in hardcore discrimination against Christians. To think otherwise is to actually believe that RICO is just used against drug Kingpins as it was originally intended and touted.
But what DOES upset me are the cowardly RINOs who voted for it and are running from it. At least be a man and stand up for your beliefs regardless of the consequences.
If only the nsGOP had the testicular fortitude for such a move. But then again, the Rhinos are in the majority. Like many older (post-retirement) democrats didn't realize years ago that their party had left them behind, too many of us are failing to see that the GOP has changed fundamentally, has left us behind. New parties have emerged in the past--the GOP is one of them. It is time for a new party, but I think we will have to be more unified first for a viable party to emerge.
I’m curious as to how many homosexually owned businesses refuse to serve straight people.
She does not have enough spine to stand up against the sodomists.
time for another constitutional amendment.
This is not about serving gay customers. It’s about merchants who have religious scruples about being forced into getting involved in a gay wedding (so-called). This absolutely is a matter of religious freedom.
Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano says this proposed law is unconstitutional.
so now an attorney can be forced to draft a homosexual based pre-marriage contract?
Napolitano supports homosexual marriage. (said so on air)
Can her veto be overridden?
The leftist fascists have been putting on the pressure, of course.
I have seen signs in shop windows in Greenwich Village and the Lower East Side that make it clear that anyone who doesn’t support the gay agenda will not be allowed to purchase anything in the store. I have seen these signs.
Now, how they enforce that, is beyond me. But you’re definitely on to something.
I understand what you’re saying, was just raising another question.
freedom of association is not unconstitutional
