Arizona's controversial 'right to refuse' bill

A controversial bill passed in the Arizona legislature Friday and some say will pave the way for discrimination against gays and lesbians.

People all across the state spent the weekend protesting the bill that gives businesses the right to refuse service based on religious beliefs.
    The bill passed 33 to 27 vote.

Adam Kwasman, a District 11 Representative "I don't see this as an attack and so far as those who believe you're protecting your right to practice your religion and not engage in a contract."
Glenn Hammond, a business owner, "It's sending a message to progressive, world or global companies that this is not a friendly environment to work within or have a business within."

The bill is now headed to Governor Jan Brewer, but she told CNN Friday that she doesn't think it should be law.
