In it, but not of it. TPM DC

Arizona Bill Aimed At Westboro Signed Into Law


Though the bill passed with no opposition in Phoenix today, not all Arizonans favor it. Pima County Republican Party chair Brian Miller told TPM yesterday he was concerned that the law would trample on first amendment rights.

State House Speaker Kirk Adams (R) addressed those concerns in an interview with the Republic after the vote.

"Anybody has a right to say what they want to say in this country," he told the paper. "But we have a right to regulate the time and place [of such speech]."
