Statement on Veto of Arizona Refusal of Service Bill

February 2014

UNAC/UHCP Vice President Denise Duncan, RN, released the following statement after the veto of a bill allowing refusal of service to gays in Arizona:

“We celebrate the veto of the discriminatory Arizona law that would have allowed businesses to refuse service to gay customers. That a conservative governor in a right-to-work (for less) state would veto the bill shows the widespread public support for equal rights regardless of sexual orientation. We urge Arizona residents to continue to stand up for fair treatment for all.”
