(Glendale, AZ) -- A controversial Senate bill could cost Arizona the 2015 Super Bowl. "Sports Illustrated" cites a source close to the league as saying the NFL is exploring moving the big game if Senate Bill 1062 becomes a law. The bill would permit businesses to deny services to gays and others based on religious beliefs. The state previously lost the 1993 Super Bowl when Arizona voted down an effort to recognize Martin Luther King, Jr Day as a holiday. The source says it's not certain a moving the Super Bowl with such short notice would even be possible. The fate of the Super Bowl could be in the hands of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who has until Saturday to either sign or veto the bill.
