Brewer Vetoes Bill
Live coverage on cable channels of Gov. Jan Brewer announcing decision on vetoing Arizona bill allowing businesses to refuse service to gays. Brewer says she's given it strong consideration despite "cheers and boos from the crowd." Frames it in context of tough economic times out there and says no threat to religious liberties at present. So she's already vetoed it. Calls for taking opportunity to discuss treating everyone fairly. Then disappears without taking questions. Crowd outside shown cheering and people waving "Thank you, Gov. Brewer."
