Arizona governor gets bill opposed by gays

Phoenix (AP) - The Arizona Senate has formally sent to Gov. Jan Brewer an already approved bill allowing business owners with strongly held religious beliefs to refuse service to gays.

Monday's action starts a five-day clock for the Republican governor to act on a proposed law she herself calls controversial.

The legislation has triggered a national backlash from supporters of gay rights.

Several Republicans running for governor have said they'd like to see the bill vetoed. But conservative groups supporting the legislation are pushing back and hoping Brewer signs it in to law.

The GOP state senators who voted for Senate Bill 1062 are urging a veto. The conservative governor also is feeling pressure from the business community to veto the bill.

Brewer returns from Washington on Tuesday.
