Flagstaff Mayor Jerry Nabours Issues Statement On SB1062

By Elisha Dorfsmith

On Tuesday, Flagstaff Mayor Jerry Nabours issued a statement opposing the highly controversial SB1062. Nabours urged the Governor to veto the legislation and underscored his support for an anti-discrimination ordinance passed by the Flagstaff City Council last year. You can read the Mayor’s full statement below:

“I have been asked for my opinion of SB1062. We know that religious organizations are exempt from discrimination laws. It appears that the Legislature was trying to extend that same rule to individuals. The problem is that the religion exemption could be too easily abused by individuals. This bill needs to be vetoed. Further, the Flagstaff City Council unanimously enacted a LGBT non-discrimination ordinance one year ago. If passed, SB1062 could be mis-used to frustrate our local ordinance, and for that reason, too, it should be vetoed.”
