1:51 pm
the state of arizona a right to refuse service to anyone targeting [inaudible] based on the guides of religious freedom. i want to note that because the arizona governor has until friday february 28 to act i request this item be put on the agenda so the board of supervisor can take a stand against this law [inaudible] as clearly as we can. [inaudible] provides essentially license to discriminate because it allows any individual corporation [inaudible] the right to refuse service to a individual if that owner believes doing so would violate their religion. it is important to note that similar
1:52 pm
laws have been struck down in new mexico and we respect the freedom of religion, it cannot be used for a exkoos for individuals to treat residence of that state whether it is [inaudible] based upon some perceived identification and treating them as inferior based on their religious beliefs mpt 1062 is a dangerous precedent [inaudible] so long as they claim office under their religious beliefs. i want to note that since the state legislator enacted sb 1062 a nov civil rights leader and officials and businesses and mbs of different parts of the

1:54 pm
of supervisors on record as opposing sb 1062 and send a message to governor [inaudible] not to sign 1062 and if she decides to sign it the board of supervisors here in san francisco urges the city to renew the boy caught of arizona. that we call upon city departments to the extent [inaudible] to refrain from entering into any new or amendment contracts for the services of good or contract station izin arizona and will take every step we can to sending [inaudible] review contracts for the purchase of goods and services from comps in arizonas. this resolution would also establish that we as
1:55 pm
the board of supervisors, that the law is signed and encouraged [inaudible] san francisco business to refrain from doing business in the state of arizona. we believe that it is important for the rest of the country to send that very clear message. we also endorse whautd our city attorney has done, which is to offer to lend a resource of his office to cooperate in a legal challenge to sb 1062. we i think have a history of standing 41 people who are the subject of discrimination and we want our breathers and sisters in arizona to hear from san francisco that they are not alone. thank you very much >> thank you sfr visor compose. president chew >> thank you i have 2 items today. first is to support a
