Gov. Jan Brewer’s decision to veto SB 1062 was the right decision for Arizona and helps mitigate some of the public backlash that occurred in the wake of the bill’s passage. The negative attention this bill brought to the state threatened Arizona’s economic recovery as well as put into jeopardy events such as the Super Bowl and the possibility of Arizona becoming a Pro Bowl location.

The state Legislature needs to move on from this political brinkmanship with our business community and start focusing on passing legislation that will keep Arizona’s economy growing. Our legislative leaders need to move past this recent trend in passing “Protest” laws that end up casting Arizona in an unflattering light and make businesses that are considering investing in the state to re-consider their options. Arizona is on the verge of becoming a premier state for business, we need leadership at the state level with the vision and execution to make this happen.
