Well, now you've done it, Center for Arizona Policy and the remaining Republican legislators who haven't had a change of thought - you've gone and pissed off Apple:
Corporate tech giant Apple has asked Gov. Jan Brewer to veto the controversial religious freedom bill SB1062, the company and the Governor’s Office confirmed.
Brewer spokesman Andrew Wilder said the governor spoke on the phone with the company.
The request comes as Apple prepares to open a new sapphire glass manufacturing plant in Mesa. The plant, which Brewer and other political leaders have touted as economic development coup for Arizona, will employ about 700 full-time employees.
Apple, of course, joins basically every other business organization in the state in voicing its opposition to the terrible legislation, which still awaits Brewer's presumed veto.
