Congratulations to Arizona governor Jan Brewer for doing the right thing today and vetoeing anti-gay legislation that would have permitted business owners to discriminate against LGBT people by refusing to serve them. As the Associated Press and others are reporting, the bill “set off a national debate over gay rights, religion and discrimination and subjected Arizona to blistering criticism from major corporations and political leaders from both parties.” Indeed, it received worldwide attention.
