Last night, this proposal and hearing were brought to my attention by an e-mail about my Councilman Sal DiCiccio's strong opposition to the proposed amendments and by an almost simultaneous e-mail about Equality Arizona's advocacy for the proposal.
I had problems with both of their missives, and asked them each questions by e-mail. Given all the hub-bub, I am not surprised that they did not respond. Here are the questions:
For DiCiccio: 1) Do you have any backup information for your statements that this would "criminalize business owners", and that "the floodgates of litigation will be opened"? Have you checked statistics and/or court cases from the other states and municipalities that have similar laws/ordinances? Can you provide some examples for this article?
We welcome your comments about this post. Or, if you have something unrelated on your mind, please e-mail to info-at-arizonaspolitics-dot-com or call 602-799-7025. Thanks.
