Football fans cheering in stadium
Nice Super Bowl plans you have there, Arizona. Be a shame if anything happened to them.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is in very serious emergency meetings trying to decide if she should sign a bill allowing any business to discriminate against anyone as long as religion was the reason. And while she's trying to make this incredibly difficult decision, opposition to the bill continues to spread.

Arizona's eighth-largest employer, JPMorgan Chase, called for a veto:

"JPMorgan Chase opposes all forms of discrimination in law and in fact. The bill passed by the Arizona legislature does not reflect the values of our country or the State of Arizona and should be vetoed. JPMorgan Chase is one of the largest private employers in the State of Arizona with over 11,000 employees here," the statement said.
Additionally, the state's 18th-largest employer, American Express, has asked Brewer to veto, an NFL source floated a rumor that the league is considering relocating the Super Bowl if SB 1062 becomes law in Arizona, and the Hispanic National Bar Association announced that it is moving its convention away from Phoenix in 2015.

But Brewer still needs to take her time thinking this thing over. How exactly is this so difficult for her?

Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed similar legislation last year. We can make her do it again—but if you're a resident of Arizona, she needs to hear from you. Please sign and send a message directly to Jan Brewer’s office.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
