Groundhog Day…AZ Style

Once again, the eyes of the nation, and the world, are on the country’s 48th state. Arizona has once again thrust itself into the conversation of rights, liberty and the pursuit of … Business????

Senate Bill 1062 is a religious freedom bill for business owners — or so they say. In reality, it is a bill that is bad for business and could be a slippery slope that sets the state back decades.

But we have been here before with the infamous 1070 bill and we are still recovering from the economic damage that legislation caused.

So now we wait. We wait to see what our fate will be as it sits in the hand (or the pen) of Governor Jan Brewer.

While the country continues to watch.

UPDATE: Late this afternoon, Gov. Brewer vetoed SB1062. Sensibility has prevailed in Arizona! (And the groundhog did not see his shadow).
