Stanton, Council Ask Governor to Veto S.B. 1062

Mayor Greg Stanton and the City Council voted this afternoon to ask Gov. Jan Brewer to veto S.B. 1062, ill-conceived legislation that would provide new legal protections to those who actively discriminate against members of the LGBT community.

The Council urged a veto with an 8 to 1 vote. Councilman Sal DiCiccio was the only council member to support the bill.

“Phoenix is an open, tolerant and inclusive community that respects the rights of every person,” said Stanton. “I’m proud that the City Council spoke with a strong and united voice that this bill is wrong, and must be vetoed.” Read more »
