SB 1062 Overshadows Other AZ Legislature Moves

Those include initial approval to bill that would allow surprise inspections to abortion clinics; Brewer signs campaign finance law repeal.



The Religious Freedom Restoration Act brought national attention to Arizona. It was the headline from the state Capitol, but plenty more happened aside from the vetoed SB 1062, a legislation opposers argued would have allowed business owners refuse service to certain groups of people, particularly gay, lesbian and transgender, using religious beliefs as justification.

I sat down with AZPM's Christopher Conover to look at some of the action that may have been missed, including:

Gov. Jan Brewer signed a bill that repeals a controversial campaign finance law.

The state House gave preliminary approval to a bill that would allow surprise inspections at abortion clinics in the state.

Also, the Legislature has yet to move on a budget for this session, and missing deadline could kill several other bills.
