Top Five Most-Read Phoenix News Stories of the Week
3.) Arizona Chamber of Commerce, Sane Republicans, Run Screaming from SB 1062
See how the blind mice run . . . as far away from Senate Bill 1062 as they can get.
This morning, the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce officially joined the increasingly crowded bandwagon of opposition to the anti-gay "religious freedom bill" that Arizona Republicans in the state Legislature passed last week.
As the Greater Phoenix Economic Council did Friday, the business associations called on Governor Jan Brewer to veto the bill.
The Chambers' statement reads in part:
"As leaders in the business community, we cannot support measures that could expose our businesses to litigation, nor do we want to send a message that our state is anything but an open and attractive place for visitors and the top talent that will be the cornerstone of our continued economic growth."
Thus proving that money is neither gay nor straight, but green.
The business leaders join a number of Sand Land GOPers who've rushed to oppose the bill, some more vigorously than others.
