SB-1062 - SB 1062 was an Arizona bill to amend an existing law to give any individual or legal entity an exemption from any state law if it substantially burdened their exercise of religion, including Arizona law requiring public accommodation.

Source

Headlights:
  • It would allow anyone to assert a legal claim or defense of free exercise of religion in a legal proceeding, regardless of whether the government is a party to the proceeding.
  • It would allow private individuals and corporations to assert religious beliefs in a way that could lead to discrimination against gay and lesbian, and other, Arizonans. This bill could embolden people to discriminate against anyone who doesn’t share their beliefs or religious practices.
  • If SB 1062 were enacted, employers could impose their religious beliefs on employees and businesses could refuse to serve customers despite state and local laws requiring public accommodations—like restaurants and hotels—to serve all people

Arizona Legislators Target Campaign Funding Program Again

Jan 6, 2014

 

SB 1178 - Vote to concur with House amendments and pass a bill that authorizes an individual to use potential infringements of religious freedom as a claim or defense in a legal proceeding.
Highlights:
The proposed law would allow people to sue over an “impending violation” of religious liberty, (such as serving or treating a person perceived to be LGBTQ) as opposed to waiting until after the attack has occurred. It protects the practice or observance of all religions, including actions motivated by religious beliefs, against state and local laws or policies.
