Glendale, AZ, United States (4E Sports) – Arizona Governor Jan Brewer announced Wednesday she had vetoed a bill allowing Arizonans to cite religious beliefs in denying services to anybody.

Brewer had until Saturday to either sign or veto the bill.

Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee CEO Jay Parry said the organization went straight to Brewer’s office to express its concern and disagreement over Senate Bill 1062.

Sports Illustrated claimed on its website that the NFL was looking to relocate next year’s Super Bowl from Glendale, Ariz., in the event SB 1062 was passed.

Parry said he was not aware of the report.

The 2008 Super Bowl in Glendale had an economic impact of about $500 million, Parry has said.
