Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has vetoed a bill that would have allowed business owners who cited their religious beliefs to turn away gay customers. Ms Brewer said the bill could have had "unintended and negative consequences". It was touted as a religious liberty protection by social conservatives. Its opponents denounced it as legalising anti-gay discrimination.
