PHOENIX - GOP leaders want to revive a bill that would allow people to sue over infringements on religious freedom after it was vetoed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer.
Cathi Herrod, president of the Center for Arizona Policy, sent an email to supporters Friday vowing to bring back Senate Bill 1178.
Civil liberties groups say the bill would legalize anti-gay discrimination.
Brewer vetoed the bill late Thursday along with four others. Brewer had told lawmakers not to send her anymore bills until they had made significant progress on her proposed Medicaid expansion plan.
Herrod also says that while she disagrees with Brewer's Medicaid proposal, Brewer remains a strong anti-abortion advocate.
Conservatives worry Medicaid expansion means more money for abortion providers, although public dollars cannot be spent on abortions under federal law.
