Brewer is being lobbied from all sides to veto the legislation. The state's Republican U.S. senators have asked her to, as has one of the leading GOP candidates to succeed her as governor. The Arizona business community has sent multiple letters to Brewer, asking her to strike down the bill.

"This has taken a life of its own. It's taken a label that is very harmful to the state," Worsley said in an interview with Arizona radio host Mike Broomhead. "I think it's time to end the discussion and the debate. We certainly did not intend to pass something that was discriminatory, and so we're saying let's get this off the table."

Brewer has said she will "do the right thing" regarding the bill. She can either sign it, veto it or let it become law without her signature.
