Statement from Campbell on Brewer’s action on SB 1062
STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – House Minority Leader Chad Campbell, D-Phoenix (District 24), released this statement after Gov. Jan Brewer announced she has vetoed SB 1062.
“I applaud Gov. Brewer for doing the right thing. By vetoing this bill, the governor has sent a message to the country that Arizona is a place of tolerance and acceptance. It is unfortunate that SB 1062 made it as far as it did in the process, but that is the fault of a handful of extremists at the Capitol who are out of step with the rest of the state. These ideologues need to be held accountable for pushing such hateful legislation, as should the Center for Arizona Policy and Cathi Herrod. It is time to put a stop to the control that these unelected extremists have in the Legislature. We will not be held hostage by their right-wing, extremist agenda.”
