Gov. Jan Brewer Considers Changing SB 1070

The Associated Press reports that Gov. Jan Brewer is considering changing SB 1070:

PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is asking legislators to consider whether they should change the state's immigration law in response to a judge's ruling blocking parts of it.

Brewer spokesman Paul Senseman confirms that the governor called top legislative leaders to broach the possibility of changing provisions of the law on Thursday, a day after U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton issued a preliminary injunction.

Senseman says the possibility of having legislators meet in special session to consider changing the law is merely being explored. He says Brewer is still pressing ahead with her appeal of Bolton's order.

Senate President Bob Burns says he'd need to know a lot more before he supports holding a special session.
