The legislation was approved Thursday with overwhelming Republican support, reports The Arizona Republic.
Brewer, a Republican, told CNN Friday she will review the bill carefully, but didn’t reveal her opinion of the legislation.
“I think anybody that owns a business can choose who they work with or who they don’t work with,” Brewer commented to CNN in Washington, DC, where she is attending a governors’ conference. “But I don’t know that it needs to be statutory. In my life and in my businesses, if I don’t want to do business or if I don’t want to deal with a particular company or person or whatever, I’m not interested. That’s America. That’s freedom.”
