PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed a bill that would have allowed business owners to deny services based on their religious beliefs.
The Republican bill set off a national debate over gay rights, religion and discrimination.
Loud cheers erupted outside the Capitol building when Brewer made the announcement about Senate Bill 1062, which she says she discussed with lawyers, citizens, businesses and lawmakers.
