Pressure Mounting On AZ Governor To Veto Controversial Bill

(Phoenix, AZ) -- Arizona's controversial "Religious Freedom Restoration Act" is stirring quite a backlash. State Representative Steve Pierce tells NBC's "Today" he and other supporters now regret backing it.
The bill allows businesses to refuse service to gays and other groups if doing so conflicts with their religious beliefs. Arizona's GOP U.S. Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake have both called on Republican Governor Jan Brewer to veto the bill. Meanwhile, the NFL says it is monitoring the situation as Glendale, Arizona prepares to host the Super Bowl next year. Apple, American Airlines, Delta and Marriott Hotels are also asking that the bill be quashed. Governor Jan Brewer has until the end of the week to either sign or veto the bill.
