SOTU Scoop

By Tracey Webb

Get your daily scoop of what we're watching for February 26, 20014.

1. Arizona's anti-gay bill. Pressure is growing against a measure that would allow the Grand Canyon state's retailers to refuse service to LGBT customers based on the owners' religious convictions. More than 80 businesses have sent a letter to Gov. Jan Brewer urging her to veto the bill.  "When the legislature passes bills like this, it creates a reputation that Arizona is judgmental and unwelcoming," the letter said. "This will haunt our business community for decades to come." The Hispanic National Bar Association is also pulling its 2015 convention from Phoenix to protest the bill.  Brewer must sign or reject the bill by the end of this week.
