+ - Apple Urges Arizona Governor to Veto Anti-Gay Legislation

Submitted by Hugh Pickens DOT Com
Hugh Pickens DOT Com (2995471) writes "NBC News reports that Apple has confirmed that it urged Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer to veto a bill that would allow business owners with strongly held religious beliefs to deny service to gays and lesbians. Last November Tim Cook announced that Apple was building a sapphire glass plant in Mesa, AZ, that would bring 2,000 new jobs to the state. "Apple is indisputably one of the world's most innovative companies and I'm thrilled to welcome them to Arizona," said Gov. Brewer said at the time. "Apple will have an incredibly positive economic impact for Arizona and its decision to locate here speaks volumes about the friendly, pro-business climate we have been creating these past four years." According to Philip Elmer-DeWitt it sounds like Tim Cook may be having second thoughts about how "friendly" and "pro-business" the climate in Arizona really is."
